We are migrating from forest A to forest B with separate exchange orgs but the same address space. Currently we host outlook web access on webmail.company.com for mailboxes in the old forest, is there a way to use the same address for the new forest too, or does it all have to be kept seperate? Old is 2007, new is 2010

No this cannot be done natively, if in different organizations you will need different URLs

Hi, your going to need separate OWA URLs configured to the same server. Also bear in mind that your UCC certificate will need to encompass all hostnames too along with the autodiscover names per organisation too.
Hope this helps.

Good point... is it possible to use a different url for autodiscover or does it need to be called that?

the autodiscover doesn't need to be called autodiscover however there is no way to differentiate users in orgA from users in orgB since they share the same namespace so autodiscover won't work for both users

I think we can get away with not using it for the duration of the migration - the old one will continue to work and the new wont until we remove the old...
