how to view different domain's global address list

Last Modified: 2010-03-06
We have  a Trust relationship setup between two domains: DOMAIN1 and DOMAIN2.
Each domain has it's own separate Exchange 2003 server. Is there a way to view DOMAIN1s global address list while logged onto DOMAIN2 and vice versa? Also, I would like to grant Mailbox rights between the domains and be able to open other domain mailboxes; is this possible?
Please provide steps if possible...

I don't have exchange 2K3 anymore, so I cant test it:  but why not create a new Global address book and fill it up with a custom LDAP query with recipients from the other domain?

This gives me something to work on for the GALs, but what about assigning mailbox rights between domains and opening mailboxes on other domains...

I ended up creating two Outlook profiles one on each domain. The user will just have to pick the appropriate profile to work with.
