Hi

We are running Exchange 2007 SP1 in our company domain of company.com

We have a sister company, also running Exchange 2007 SP1. Their domain is sister.com (seperate forest) and they have their own Exchange org.

One of our users - a manager - would like to have access to another mailbox in the sister company.

Assuming we can set up the trusts etc, is this possible?

If you have outlook 2010, and if you can create Trust between forests, you can have both mailboxes open within the same profile.

It may not work for 2003/2007 as it allows only one exchange account at a time.
Load additional mailbox hasn't worked also.

Here are some cases from people trying similar things

You can download outlook 2010 trial and give it a go.

I'm using Outlook 2010 (beta), and I can have 2 Exchange mailboxes from 2 different Exchange organizations without any trust, in a single profile. Both organizations are Exchange 2003.

You can't do this in Outlook 2003. I think this is a limitation of Outlook, not Exchange. If you must use Outlook 2003, then you can only have one Exchange mailbox in a single profile, but you can still set up POP3 or IMAP for the other account.

hope that helps..
