OWA Virtual Directory security

Hello.
We have Microsoft Forest with two equal-rights domains (domain1 and domain2).
We have one Front-End server and two Back-End servers (one for aech domain). All servers is Exchange 2000.
On the Front-End server created two Virtual Directories: "dom1" and "dom2"
Directory security for DOM1 is "Basic -> domain1"
Directory security for DOM2 is "Basic -> domain2"
On the Front-End server created Virtual Directory "public" (for public folders).

Now problem:
When I set Directory Security for "public" to "Basic -> domain1", then users from domain2 can connect to them private folders (by http://srv/dom1), but can't connect to public folders.
When I set Directory Security for "public" to "Basic -> domain2", then users from domain1 can connect to them private folders (by http://srv/dom2), but can't connect to public folders.
When users try open http://srv/public, then only one domain users can connect to that link. Second domain users get "Access Error".

Can i solve this problem, so that all peoples from both domains can connect to public folders?

When you set the domain for Basic Auth in IIS, then the server will only look for usernames in that domain by default.  So, if you set the domain to DOMAIN1, this means that users in domain2 will have to log on with DOMAIN2\USERNAME and PASSWORD , instead of just their USERNAME and PASSWORD .  And vice versa.
