Yes - you just need to add the second domain to the recipient policy :)

Yes.  Set recipient policy to list each domain name.

Exchange System Manager
Recipients
Recipient Policies
Default Policy
Properties
E-Mail Addresses (Policy)

SMTP Address
Add the new mail domain

It will ask if you want to update all the recipients?

click Yes - restart the exchange services (or reboot)

 Ok that worked great.  Any limitations to the amount of domains exchange can handle?  Or is it limited by standard vs. enterprise ed?
  Also, how to i prohibit users in seperate domains from seeing the GAL?  I do not want them to see all Users on the box, just in there own domain.

No your exchange box doesnt care about domains it only cares about mailbox's a mail box called fred.bloggs can have a miriad of different email addresses but the mailbox will always just be called fred.bloggs :)

>>Also, how to i prohibit users in seperate domains from seeing the GAL?

Its a global address list it will show ALL the accounts in the exchange organisation - GAL doesnt care about domains either
