I will be adding a second domain to our exchange 2003 server. I have the procedure in how to do this, but I am unsure on how to create new mailboxes because I have never done it before. Do I need to create a second storage group for the new domain to add new mailboxes?

No, adding a domain simply allows exchange to recieve mail for that domain.  You don't create mailboxes for e-mail addresses or domains - you create mailboxes for users, groups, and public folders and decide what email address(es) those folders should have - in either or both domains.

Let's be clear - what kind of domain are you talking about?  A DNS domain - like you want to get mail for mycompany.com and mycompany.info at the same time? OR you have two ACTIVE DIRECTORY DOMAINS and are trying to setup for that?

To be more clear, my question is: when setting up a mailbox for an exisiting user, how do I set their mailbox up to only receive emails from the new dns domain?

I'll repeat:
You don't create mailboxes for e-mail addresses or domains - you create mailboxes for users, groups, and public folders and decide what email address(es) those folders should have - in either or both domains.

If you want userA to only send and recieve email as userA@domain2.com, then under the user's Properties in Active Directory Users and Computers (on a server with the Exchange System Administrator Installed), go to the email addresses tab. Set the default address and remove any other address you don't want.  Or add other addresses you do want.  That's it.
