We will be changing our domain name from a single domain name to a new name..
I think I will have to setup a new exch 2010 environment if we do this, but I just wanted to run this past all to see what everyone thinks...

Renaming the domain with exchange 2010 is not supported by MS, you'll be going in without support.

If you're bent on going this route, setup a new AD forest, and then migrate ad-objects. Alternatively, you could setup a new AD domain in the same forest - see this link for more information http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2009/10/27/3408616.aspx

Also, you could remove exchange and then rename your domain, reinstall exchange. This has to be a cautious approach, based on the number of AD dependent applications. Time consuming, and detail oriented - you'd have to detail the exchange environment before you dispatch it and then recreate it all with your notes.
