Creating Mailboxes for an AD SubDomain

I have an AD Domain and an AD SubDomain.  Our Exchange Server is 2003 Ent Ed and our OS is 2003 Ent Edition.  I am trying to use our single Exchange server to support both Domains.  I have run DomainPrep on the SubDomain and installed the Exchange Management Tools.  I can now add Exchange attributes to the users in the Sub Domain but no mail box is created in Exchange when I look at the Exchange Manager.  When I try to connect one of the Sub Domain users in Outlook it fails when I click on the Check Name button.  Gives me the message "The Name could not be resolved.  The name could not be matched with a name in the address list."

Any suggestions?
