How do I add a new domain (SMTP) in the Exchange Server as primary without eliminating/disabling the current SMTP?

My Exchange Server is currently configured to use (not the actual SMTP). We just started leasing (not actual domain). We wanted to start using as our primary SMTP in our Exchange Server. I've already added it but not sure what to do next. I think I have a pretty good grip of the general process of changing it but not the specifics. Detailed information to change the configuration is appreciated. Thanks!

You will need to have an MX record setup to point the new domain to your Exchange organisation. In order to assign the users an e-mail address with the new domain you will need to created a new recipient policy. You also need to set the policy to allow your Exchange org to accept mail for the new domain.
