Exchange 2007 Resource Forest account delegation

We are in the final stages of rolling out a new Exchange environment built on a resource forest. As far as account delegation goes I am interested about how permissions are assgined. Since all mailboxes have disabled users created in the resource forest and are linked to master accounts in the login domain how do you add full access permission to a mailbox in the resource forest to an account in the login domain? Do you grant the access to the disabled users with the linked account or do you need to point the permissions back to the user account in the login domain? Thanks for any help.

so you have an account forest and exchange forest.
A trust exists between the two and the users logon to the account forest and then connecte to outlook using a linked account in the exchange forest.

As the trust is in place you assign the permission against the account in the exchange forest ... typically "self" is assigned against a users mailbox

Okat let's say that there is a shared mailbox that multiple users need to access. Since there aren't any accounts in the resource forest other than disabled accounts that are created when you create a linked mailbox how do you assign access to users in the login domain?

as the resource forest has a trust to the production user domain (I hope) you assign it to the disable accounts as that is all the resource forest can see?
