I want to add a front end server. I have an emptyroot Forest with 4 child domains, each with its own Exchange 2003 server. Can I put the front end server in a child domain and still use it to connect to the other 3 exchange servers? How?

Exchange servers operate at the Org and forest level, not the domain level. Therefore as long as all of the Exchange servers are in the same Forest, then it will work. Exchange doesn't care whether it is in the same or a different domain.

Users will have to specify the domain, either in domain\username or username@domain.com
