New and seperate Exchange Server

We send out large amounts of marketing email (all subscription, no spam) and I was wanting to separate that traffic from my normal email traffic.  I think the best route would need to be another exchange server sending from a different domain than our primary domain.  For example marketing.domain.com and have all our normal email traffic from domain.com.  The question is when I introduce another exchange server do I need another completely separate AD environment as well?

If your desire is just to put mass-mailing task on dedicated server, then you do not need to create separate AD for it. You can create second Exchange server in your Exchange organization and move mass-senders' maiboxes there.

to follow up with both comments:  We want mail to go out a different IP for that very reason.  If our marketing gets on blacklists it won't affect the day to day email.  Not sure what you mean by creating a new domain and applying the users you would like to accept mail, this is all outgoing.  I can't move the users mailboxes to the new server as it's a separate "listserv" type machine that sends all the marketing mail out.  The primary reason for doing this is to get all the marketing email out on a different Ip address to avoid any blacklists for our day to day functions.

How would you go about just setting up an smtp server as a relay?  And could you make it go out a different IP address?

There are many open source and/or free SMTP servers around. Installation and configuration such a server is not that complex as with Exchange. By the way, you have mentioned "listserv server". It looks like you might not need any additional server at all, for your "listserv" computer may already have SMTP server functionality. That is well might be that all you need is to allow your listserv to go to the Internet directly.

Making any server to go out a different IP address is quite another task which must be solved as for Exchange as for any other server. It might involve purchasing a new Ip address from provider, configuring Nat on edge routers, registering in public DNS etc.

I called it a "listserv" but basically it's software that  uses outlook, etc.  I won't go into details on that.  I know I'll have to create the MX records in dns, etc as well.  Just wanted to verify that I can do it with a plain old smtp server.
