We are currently using Exchange Server 5.5 for our own mail at xyz.com

We currently purchased a smaller company and would like to host their mail on our exchange server since we have the infrastructure, spam filter backup etc.

Aside from the MX records that need to be changed to point to our mail server what do I need to do in Exchange to recieve mail for the new domain newcompany.com

Thanks

I see the option for adding a new recipients container - how will exchange know that this container is for newcompany.com? i dont see any settings

Commented:
create a new container and then you can create your new recipients in this newly container. you cannot move them once they have been created.

the email address that is configured under Site Addressing is used to stamp newly created users.
