I currently have an MX record setup for our email.  

Hostname     Record       Address
@                  MX             mail.aptchicago.com
mail                A               72.xx.xx.xx

I want to add @aptmilwaukee.com to point to the same static IP address.

Is this possible?

Yes - just add a MX record on the new domain name to point at the same IP address - make the changes within exchange configuration (adding the new domains in there too) and everything will work.

I have everything working internally.  

Would the new MX record look this?

Hostname     Record       Address
@                  MX             mail.aptmilwaukee.com
mail                A               72.xx.xx.xx

or this?

Hostname     Record       Address
@                  MX             mail.aptchicago.com
mail                A               72.xx.xx.xx

you have two domains

aptchicago.com

and

aptmilwaukee.com

the first domain  (aptmilwaukee.com) would be

Hostname     Record       Address
@                  MX             mail.aptmilwaukee.com
mail                A               72.xx.xx.xx

the second  (aptchicago.com) would be

Hostname     Record       Address
@                  MX             mail.aptchicago.com
mail                A               72.xx.xx.xx

Thet means that you dont have your internal side configured correctly... you need to configure exchange to accept mail for the new domain.

What version of exchange do you have ?

It's working now.  The problem was a spam filter called mail washer.  I added the domain to mail washer and it's working now.  Thanks for the help.
