Exchange Replication working for a couple days then stops

I have taken over an implementation that someone else setup but basically what is going on is this:

Exchange Public Folder Replication has been setup on one mail server in Domain A and is configured to replicate all Public Folders to an exchange server in Domain B.  A trust exists obviously and the replication works for the first couple days when you start it.  But after a finite amount of time the replication stops and the folders fall out of snyc.  Both servers are Win 2003 and Exchange 2003.  The replication software was setup per Microsoft's instructions form what I have seen so far.

Has anyone seen this behavior?

What do you mean by replication software? Are these two domains in separate forests?

"The replication software was setup per Microsoft's instructions form what I have seen so far." - Which software are you talking about ??

If both Exchange servers are within the same administrative group - mail flow is something that you should be concerned rather than trust. Exchange will rely upon mail flow for contents to be replicated and not trust. Trust comes into picture only when you want to modify / add / delete contents into Active Directory.

My concern would be when you mention that both folders go out-of-sync means if you add any information on PF on domainA - does it not get replicated to domainB Exchange box ? If so, do you find your mails get stuck in Queue on domainA Exchange box in name of Exchange of domainB ??

I will check this and get back to you about it.  Also, yes, 2 seperate forests here with a trust between them.

So far I have separated the amount of time to run the replication from 5 to 30 minutes and things are working well.
