Yes, it is possible if you have correct recepient policy defined and MX records for both the domains are pointing to your mail gateway.

Yes it is. In SBS 2003 / Exchange 2003, You have to add the other domains to the Default Recipient policy or create new policies, but it is pretty straight forward.

The following article is specific to SBS 2003:
You only need to do the second part, set up the recipient policy, if you want all users to have an e-mail address in the new domain. If only some you can add the addresses manually.

You can't just add the address manually and expect it to work. Exchange 2003 needs to be aware of the domain name, by checking the "This Exchange Org. is responsible for all mail delivery to this address" when setting up the Recipient Policy.

Sorry, incorrectly written. By not having to do second part I should have said you don't have to select "Automatically update e-mail addresses based on recipient policy' if you do not want all users to have an address in the added domain.
