How do I go about transitioning to a new email domain name?

Here is my scenario:

Currently, we have a domain, let's call it XXXX.  All of our email addresses however, are firstname_lastname@YYYY.org.  We'd like to transition our email addresses to @ZZZ.org.  The domain will stay the same (XXXX), just the email suffix will change.  However, we'd also like to keep @YYYY.org active for the external world who will obviously still be sending to @YYYY.org.

Is this just adding a new entry into the default recipient policy in Exchange?  Making @ZZZZ.org the primary, but still keeping @YYYY.org checked?  Any advice would be much appreciated!

Hi mcascio,

Create appropriate MX record for new domain and configure Exchange to recieve mail for multiple domains.

That is correct. Exactly what you need to do. You can create a new email address policy instead of editing the default one.
