SMTP Address Question

We recently merged with a European company.  They have dictated that we all use the same address (firstname.lastname@company.com.)  They have an Exchange server, and so do we.  We are going to drop a DC in our US office and connect it to their domain in the UK.  We also want to have an Exchange server here and one there.  Is there anyway to have 2 SMTP pointers point to the domain?  Or do we need to keep the domains separate?  I imagine it would be a problem if outside DNS servers had SMTP pointers pointing to 2 separate IP addresses?  True?

You can also have multiple SMTP addresses for any given user.  
Examples:
   firstname.lastname@company.com (primary)
   flastname@oldcompany.com
   firstname.lastname@oldcompany.com

Email to all three addresses will be delivered to the user.  When they send it will come from firstname.lastname@company.com.

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
