If the email address in the other domain is deleted you will have to re-create it and then set up forwarding in Exchange to the address in the new domain.

To do this open the Exchange System manager right click on the user you want to change and select Delivery Options from the General tab.  Select Forward to from the Forwarding Address section. Select Modify. Add the email address to forward the mail to. select OK.
Choose OK then OK again to close the window.
