In my office, I have two domains and each domain has an Exchange 2003 server.  One Exchange server has half of our users and the other Exchange server host the other half.  Both servers host emails  My routher forwards all incoming emails to one exchange server.  How can I tell that server, if the mailbox is not found, forward the email to the exchange server in the other domain.

    As alanhardisty said the ONLY way to do this is to use a shared name space.

    I have to ask though, if they are in the same building why are you managing 2 domains/exchange unfastructures?
