How to set up sub-groups of users to us alternate domain for outgoing emails

My company is going to be changing names, and thus its domain name at the start of the year.   I have set up a new domain name, and also update Recipient Policy on Exchange so that all users can receive email from the current domain, as well as the new one.

At the start of the year, I would like to know how to enable a sub-group of users to only be able to use the new domain for all outgoing email, while still receiving email from both domains.  I.E, user "joe" can receive emails coming into joe@olddomain.com and joe@newdomain.com, but when he responds, forwards, or otherwise sends any new email, he may only do so using joe@newdomain.

You set the default email address for the recipient policy to make the new the default. You can either choose these users by group or OU. Ou is the best choice.

Users cannot choose which domain their email goes out on. Therefore you just have to ensure that your preferred domain is the default address on the user accounts.

I understand what you are saying Sembee, as I do not want users choosing which domain they use to send outgoing mail.

So would it make more sense to set up a new Recipient policy altogether to take care of the new domain name, and then add only those users who need email on the new domain name to that new policy?  Am I on the right track?

I didn't say that users could choose what domain they are using. I don't know where you got that idea from based on what I have posted above.

You can go down the recipient policy route if you like. I certainly wouldn't add users to a recipient policy, that is very tedious. I would set the policy to work on a group, and then add the users to that group. However that is just an automated way of doing what I said in my post above.
