Exchange 2010 Alias for another domain

Hello -

Exchange 2010 question.

I am pretty new to Exchange. I have been tasked with setting up aliases for the 5 people in the IT department. I am going to first give an example of what we have and I will need some assistance in getting this setup. I know it must be easy but I wanted to run it past you 'Experts' in Exchange first before I proceeded.

Currently our external domain is (example): jdoe@domain.com
What we need is an alias that people external and internal can email to: jdoe@TechSupportDomain.com (NOTICE THAT THIS IS A DIFFERENT DOMAIN) and have it point to -->jdoe@domain.com

This way the email can go TO jdoe@domain.com and when he replies it looks like it is coming FROM jdoe@techsupportdomain.com. All of this while still keeping his first email address in place to keep recieving email (after all this is just an Alias).

Does this make sense?

Ok, so what needs to be done on the server? Anything need to be done on Outlook Pro 2007 (running Windows 7 Pro clients)?

Oh yeah, the server: VM on ESXi 4.1 running  2008 R2 ENT, Exchange 2010 Std, 8GB RAM, 4 procs, ~250 mailboxes/objects (small environment)

My boss said the relay is already setup but I dont know how to verify so that is what I need to also make sure while we are in here as well.

Please help. Need this setup by EOB Thursday but really need to get done today if all possible.
