Exchange 2003 problem- creating mailbox for child domain users

Ok I've searched around for answers to my problem but some of them don't make sense so I decided to post my problem.
I need to be able to create mailboxes for users in a child domain.  I have root domain Papa.com and I created a new child domain Kid.com.  I have exchange users in papa.com so they are receiving mail just fine (ex. jsmith@papa.com).  I log into the exchange server to access the Kid.com users via (ADU&C).  I go via the wizard and assign them a mailbox on my Exchange box which resides on papa.com.

The only thing is that I don't see the mailbox on ESM, I can't log into the profile for the user nor do I see the exchange attributes when I look at the users properties via (ADU&C).  I thought creating a RUP to the Kid.com would resolve my problem but it did not.

Can anybody help?  Is there somewhere I can look at for instructions?  Is there a white paper?  I'm stumped.

Thanks ahead of time for any advice.

You need to create a recipient policy for kid.com

go to the recipient policies folder, create a new recipient policy call kid.com
Add an smtp address for kid.com
choose the option this Exchange Organisation is responsible for mail delivery for this domain.

When you create mailboxes in AD users and computers, they will not be visible in Exchange System Manager until the mailbox has received mail. Try sending a mail to the mailbox you have created. Make sure that you create a recipient update service for the kid domain and that it has run successfully.

ok. thanks for the tip that solved my problem but now I ran into this issue.  It took a while for user to appear in my GAL and to be able to log into the profile via Outlook.  Now I can't send/receive for this mailbox enabled user.  Not sure why but could it be some SMTP connector?   I just have one Exchange server that's on the Papa.com domain the Kid.com just has users that are to be using the Papa.com exchange server.

thanks... for the tip.
