Hi guys, I have 2 seperate forests with a trust configured between them. Each forest has their own exchange organisation running EX2010. Is it possible to link the 2 organisations so that a) mail flows between them and b) mailboxes can be migrated between organisations? If so, whats involved in making it happen?

    You'll need to create a send connector on each box pointing to another as smart host and having the other Org's email address specified as "address space" on the send connector.

    This should take care of your sending email issue.

    Here is a lengthy article that talks about move mailbox cross - forest.

    Thanks for the info, but the link takes me to a page about "A virtual directory is running under an incorrect application pool". I did a search for moving mailboxes across forests and found some interesting documentation, but if you have one you recommend I'd like to read over it too.

    Here are two links for you, I'll highly recommend to read. It's written by an ol fren of mine and an Exchange Guru.
