I'm not sure what you mean by:
"> When I check the MX record for the new domain the Microsoft ESMTP MAIL
> Service replies with the main public email domain for the SBS box."
Does that mean you used a telnet session to your SBS? Please elaborate on
how you checked it.
Normally, to test to see if the MX record was created correctly, we can use
nslookup and setting the query to MX, such as:

To test a reverse entry:

If you use telnet to test connectivity to your server from the outside world
(such as from home), open telnet, then type in:
open mail.domain.com 25
You should see it open up to your mail server's SMTP FQDN banner, which
should match your MX record.
If receiving for multiple domains, you can simply specify that domain2.com's
MX record is set to domain1.com's MX. This will simplify setting it up, as
well as SPF records.
