yes you can

assume company name asd.com need to host its emplyees mailboxes on ur server

then, on your exchange server create new accepted domain named asd.com,
create new OU in your domain for this company, put in it all its users, and put company attribute for each user to be ASD

then create new email address policy so that users whom company attribute is ASD thier default domain is asd.com

on public DNS server, create new MX record for ASD.COM that pointing to the real IP address of your exchange server
