I don't think this can happen. Exchange will not work across forests.

But wait for others to comment, I may be wrong.

The only thing that I can think might work is a user account in the same forest as the Exchange server, then a user account in the other forest is given permissions to that account. Never tried it as I would have advised the client to use a single forest and child/parent model.

Ah.... ok here's the way I solve this problem for right now

I create a new user name on DOMAINB and FORESTB then use a workstation
login as the new user i created. then I create a profile that originally on the FORESTA and DOMAINA
and it's working, I think this should be fine ;/ if there's no other possible way
