Hosting separate company on AD 2003 and Exchange 2003

I have a client who is starting up a new business with very little cash.  To help him, I have offered to host his e-mail on my Exchange Server.  I am running an Windows network using Windows Server 2003 and Exchange Server 2003.  He will have approximately 16 people who need e-mail.  I want to setup and host his e-mail domain within my existing domain.  I want his users to have only his domain e-mail addresses.  I want to restrict his users to a custom address list for his company only.  I have been reading about this for a few days via Google, etc and I am confused.  Can some please point me in the right direction?

Keep in mind, you will need 16 more Exchange CALs for him and I THINK you'll need Windows CALs too - that about $90 per user or almost $1500.  (He can buy them for you)

I'm not sure how you'd get a separate Global Address List... The whole point of a Global Address List is that it's GLOBAL.  Exchange 2007/2010 can likely handle this better... of course, better still, have your friend use a hosted Exchange solution - it's cheaper in the short term - typically $10-15 per month and no need for CALs, so 16 users can be as little as $160 per month instead of starting off with $1500 for the CALs necessary, not to mention your time and effort getting this setup.

leew,

Thanks for the prompt reply.  I already have ample Exchange and Windows CALs for my server, so that cost is something I already bore a long long time ago.  I just need some technical assistance in reconfiguring my Exchange Server 2003 to handle this.

You can easily add the domain and set the users so that that domain is the only one used by specific users - the Global address list is the only thing I'm really not sure if you can do.

Adding the domain is fairly easy - see http://www.petri.co.il/configure_exchange_2000_2003_to_receive_email_for_other_domains.htm

leew,

Thanks again for the pointer, however, I have already done what you referenced; as a matter fact, I used the Petri.co.il article as a source.  The part I am really stuck on is limiting the new uses to one specific address list.

Which I don't think you'll be able to do in 2003 (MAYBE 2003 Enterprise, but doubt it).
