Are you talking about a single account from another domain, or do you mean that Exchange would be the mail server for that domain?
What Exchange version are we talking about?

Yes that is possible. You'll have to add an accepted domain and a new recipient policy. Note that to recieve emails in an inbox from a certain domain the email address only needs to be on the mailbox but to send from one you have to have to have the mail adress set as the primary SMTP address.

So the easiest thing would be to create a new mailbox with the new domain.

Just to be clear, that domain exists and is set up on another mail server(s), right?
Is your server an SBS?

Made Man,

My answer talks about you being the owner of another domain. From your feedback I believe that you are not the owner of the domain and that you have a mailbox "hosted" somewhere one another server.

In your current config you cannot connect that mailbox using your exchange. The only possibility your would have is to have a non-authoritive domain set up on your exchange. But for that to work the owner of the domain would have to forward all messages to recipients not on his mailserver to your server

Made_man,

I would say connect to that email address on your server with outlook. You could put the senders emain address in outlook to the email address on the remote server but that might cause your emails to be marked as spam.

Any chance you can ask them to set up an RPC-over-HTTPS (or outlook anywhere) connection for you? That would be the easiest solution to your problem...
To receive those e-mails, I would think that the POP3 connector would be the best choice.
What do you mean when you say "they have already setup the email address and that is being forwarded to a email address i have set up on our server"?
Is mail for that address already being received on a mailbox of your server?
As for setting the sending part, have a look here:

I disagree that there were no points given even though help was provided. I think both me and Geminon gave you valuable information and answered your question accordingly.
The solutions provided did work.
