How can I reply using an e-mail address with a different domain than the one on my exchange

Our main Domain abc.com, is configured in Exchange 2007, this is our primary email server.  We recently purchased a separate domain. for a small project that the execs are working on.  We have this domain being forwarded straight from "Go Daddy" to each of their individual email addresses.

Example:  jsmith@xyz.com (new domain) to  jsmith@abc.com (existing account here).  

The problem is that when they reply they are replying with jsmith@abc.com (existing account here) not the new domain.

Explain this:

"We have this domain being forwarded straight from "Go Daddy" to each of their individual email addresses."

It doesn't make sense.

A domain is not forwarded to an address.  Mail is forwarded to an address.

What EXACTLY is the forwarding setup?

Are the execs receiving emails at xxxx@xyz.com?  Do they have mailboxes associated with those addresses?
Or do emails sent to xxxxx@xyz.com land in a mailbox associated with xxxxx@abc.com ?

What are they using to send and receive mail?  Outlook?  Something else?

We have 3 email addresses being forwarded straight from "Go Daddy" to each of their individual email addresses here.

Go Daddy has a free email forwarding feature  "Forwarding Addresses Only" you can use if you do not want to set up email accounts with them.

Type
    All Accounts
    Email Accounts Only
    "Forwarding Addresses Only"


Yes, emails sent to xxxxx@xyz.com land in a mailbox associated with xxxxx@abc.com

They receive the mail in the Outlook inbox, however when they reply it uses xxxxx@abc.com addresses.

Do I need to set up a connector in Exchange?

So from the recipients' perspective, they can't tell that the messages were originally sent to the address on the other domain.   Accordingly, they reply from the domain at which they received the email.

The recipients will need to choose which email address they want to respond from when they draft their replies.
