Allowing Outlook web access to access another exhange server in a child domain

I have a domain with a name of xxx.com, that has a child of domain of yyy.xxx.com. both domains have there own exchange server, although all email addresses are name@xxx.com.

I need a way that will allow me to use Outlook web mail in the xxx.com domain that will allow me to be able to log into the accounts in the yyy.xxx.com. I can do this with asp page(s) that redirect if the account isn't found on the first domain xxx.com to yyy.xxx.com. It occationally freaks out on the ssl cert, but it works.

What I'm looking for though is a better way that eliminate these redirects., but uses some type of exchange setting or something. The redirect from our portal will only allow us to name a single exchange address, and it doesn't like the asp redirects.

If this doesn't make sense I can clarify further.

Thanks in advance.

If these servers are both in the same AD forest, then I am guessing they are part of the same Exchange organisation.

In that case, you can set one of them to be a Front End server and it will pass on the request to the other server if needed.

You do this on the server object in Exchange System Manager.

I've been using a single server scenario configured as a front-end server for over a year, so yes it can.  It isn't the normal use for a front-end, but it has certain benefits, such as coping with different e-mail domains automatically.

From what I have read/seen in a multi server environment the front end server can not or should not have user accounts or public stores located on it. Perhaps what Microsoft says is what they want, but they support either way. i don't know. Guess further input would be helpful. I'm planning to build it on a seperate server.

 Thanks for your help.

The normal use of a front-end server is to distribute the load.  So you use front-end servers to support, for example, OWA, but use multiple back-end servers for databases.  Using one server as both a front-end and a database server increases the load and so normally it wouldn't be appropriate, but in smaller organisations it really does help by simplifying logon, for example.
