I think the first issue here is that, and correct me if I am wrong,
OpenExchange is a full blown mail server where phpGroupWare is a mail
client. whatever smtp/pop3/imap server you choose is where you
configure the mail accounts and domains, then you make matching
accounts in phpw, and/or use LDAP to have a centralized account
managemnt, that use a "template" of sorts to login to the mail server.
outside of that, multi-domain support in phpgw is more for having a
separate databases for multiple domains, but using the same phpgw
install on the server. you'd use aliases and/or vhosts point domains
and/or urls to phpgw, or use a selection box on the phpgw login screen
at a common url, and the domains are defined in the manage header part
