Do you mean a resource domain?
Never heard anyone doing a dedicated forest before - let alone seen any documentation on doing so.

Hi Simon,
In an Exchange Dedicated Forest scenario the exchange server is in its own forest (the resource domain). I am looking for some type of implementation guide for this scenario. e.g. what steps need to be taken for implementation, what is the recommended procedure, etc.
Thank you.

Have you reviewed this whitepaper yet?  The Exchange portion is pretty straight forward once the separate forest is running.  You will have an account with a mailbox in the Exchange forest.  

Authentication would be the biggest question.  You could either a forest trust, then add the user's network account (Forest A) as the "owner" of the Exchange mailbox/user (Forest B).  Alternatively, you could have users provide separate credentials for the mailbox (Forest B), than they do for other resources.

I assume you have something driving the decision to pursue this type of design.  If the concern is security, then creating a trust between the forests might negate the separation you are trying to establish.  Read the MS paper as it covers resource access.  The Exchange mailbox is just a resource in this scenario.

You can have a resource forest in which Exchange is installed
You can have a account domain in which the user accounts reside
However you need to setup trust relationships and also provide full mailbox access to the assosciated external account
