We have Exh2003 in Win2003 sp2. AD on Win2003 sp3 both on different servers. and outook 2003 sp3 as client.
We have a domain for email addresses.   domain.com. However, we just purchased a new email domain called
newdomain.com . We are going to use both domains for a specific department (sales). What steps do i need to do to add it up into my exchange so i can create this email address and recieved email from outside, and later added to user properties in AD.
Please advise what things i need to do on exchange or AD.
Thanks,
Fausto

You need to add the domain to the exchange recipient policies - see:

The manager in that x-department have just purchased a new domain.
This will be a secondary email domain  in our exchange. everyone in the x-departmetn will use as primary. i already put it int the recipient policy.
That was a good article about the mx record. i only have the domain name, but no ip. i have contacted  these people, but no answer. When you buy an email domain, it come with an ip?
what should i tell my IP about my new email domain?
for NY we have mx 10 newyorkdomain.com
                           mx 50 chicagodomain.com
for chicago we have mx 10 chicagodomain.com
                                  mx 50 newyorkdomain.com
can you please help me with this? i am new to this.
Thanks,

You need to contact you ISP to configure the MX records unless the domain name provider gave you access to customize you DNS entries.

no i have not given access to anything. This DNS provider is in Europe, so my option is to call my Isp and tell them that we have a new email domain to be configure in our mx records correct?

THe domain name provider will need to update the nameservers for that domain to either your registrar or your ISP.

You have a new domain and you need to setup a PTR, MX, and A Host records for it. These should all point to your external IP providing email services, etc.
