I would like to add an additional domain in the exchange 2010 so I should be able to receive email from that domain and should be able to add that domain email as SMTP under active domain (SMTP).

    Assuming you want to be able to send and receive email for that domain:  Exchange Management Console/Organization Configuration/Hub Transport, Accepted Domains tab. Right-click in the blank area and select "New Accepted Domain" or use the Action pane and click New Accepted Domain.  Then of course you'd have to set up an email address policy for those users who should have an email address on that domain.

    Also make sure you have the MX records of that domain in place.

    Thanks Guys. I only wants to receive the email. Do I have to create an OU for email address policy or I can use the existing one?

    Thanks Zackur, i have the MX record in place already :)

    You don't have to create a separate OU. I don't want to belabor the obvious, but in order to receive mail for the new domain, you'll have to create at least one mailbox/user account that will have an email address on that domain. If you just want that one account to receive all of that domain's email, then you don't have to create an address policy.  Just manually create the email address for that mailbox.
