You need to edit the recipient policy to add the second domain to it. This tells Exchange that it should handle the mail delivery to that domain.

You then need to get the MX records changed with your ISP so that they have the same settings as your existing domain.

Have a read of these articles for further information:

yeshaofeng - with future questions, please make sure that you get all of the details you need prior to closing the question.
The idea is for you to work with the Experts - asking for and giving clarifications - before you give the grade.

Aha, that's where the last two comments went! The question is open again so I was anticipating them going in to Open Discussion, not realising it was reopened!

See the second comment above, it has some better links.

I still can't figure it out.  I modified the recipient policy, add a SMTP domain , set it as the primary domain and apply it. But the email addresses of all accounts didn't change at all.

Now I can send and receive email between these two domains. But I still can't receive email from outside to the new domain. The MX record does work.  I setup another virtual SMTP server to handle the new domain and used a new different IP address on it.  Is there anything I missed?
