Send from IMAP / POP3 from Exchange Account

Is this possible? I have a client who is on an exchange network but uses a different email domain as it is a different part of the business. We would like to have access to his mailbox from other PCs / Accounts but since he doesn't send from the main domain account we cannot see his inbox / sent mail. Currently we have his Outlook setup with 2 accounts, Main Domain for local calendars / tasks and another account attached to his outlook for receiving & sending. I know i can receive his IMAP mail through exchange but we would also like him to be able to send from this account and have all the exchange features.

This other domain is Exchange?
On that case, can access by OWA, POP3 and IMAP4 if administrator configures it

The main account is Exchange but we don't want to send from that Domain. We need to be able to view the mailbox with IMAP email from another clients Outlook, we currently have this setup with all the other Exchange account but being that we have this IMAP attached locally to his outlook we can't see the IMAP mailbox.

I need some clarification about.

User has two mailboxes. One on local domain, another external, thats correct?
One mailbox has one email address, one@email.com and another has another email address on another domain, two@email.net.
two@email.net is an alias on one@email.com mailbox or are different? This mailboxes are in same server or separate?

Two mailboxes is correct yes

Main exchange domain is @xxx.net (local)
Extra IMAP email is @xxx1.net (external)

You must not do this, some (most of them) uses validation server and another technical features to detect fake mail servers. If you send emails from your server using another domain that not held you, you are sending fake mails and probably those emails ends on junk mailbox.

You can try (but I do not recommend you because from internal to extenal flow may not work) this:

configure external email as your internal email: http://support.microsoft.com/KB/268838
create an alias on internal mailbox with external email address
create an smtp connector to this external domain to use external smtp address with less cost than your external smtp connector to rest of destinations: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996625(v=exchg.65).aspx

but may happens when somebody sends to external, Exchange detects this email is internal, not use external connector and email never arrives to destination.
