Mail and domain question

Hello everybody! My first question and is is a good one......

I am facing a merger between two organisations. They both have there own domain and own different mail-systems.
My task to create a solution to form a new mail-domain while the old mail systems remain intact.
Is there anyone who has any pointers for this direction?
My idea was to let a Suse 10.2 Linux server do Sendmail (o.i.d) in which the email-addresses of both domains are known, and relay mail from there.
I am no newbie into Linux, but are into a 'challenge'like this!
Anybody has any pointers, be glad to receive.......

Using postfix you can setup aliases so that when it receives email for it will be interpreted as; and another alias for to receive emails which will go to Yes that is very possible using aliases in postfix.

Re; mail and domains

Hello RamRam29, got any examples of that? and wouldn't you have to import the mail address of both domains somehow? Or are there 'live' LDAP couplings possible?
Still lots of questions........
