We need to integrate GAL and free/busy calender status on exchange 2007 servers across a forest with two different domains, can this be done without using MIIS?  Do we need to create a trust between the domains?

Microsoft hasn't confirmed compatibility with IIFP and exchange 2007, I will be deploying however because it is the most cost effective tool.

Good luck. Have you done any testing with IIFP? I started reading about that yesterday.
I am looking at doing some custom coding to create contacts in each domain based on mailboxes in the other. Not sure what I will do about calendars..
