How to grant Exchange Administator rights to users from a trusted domain (different forest)

We have two domains (seperate forests) with a two-way trust between them.  I want to give some users in DomainA administrative rights for the MS-Exchange 2007 server in DomainB.

The "Exchange Organization Administrators" group is a Universal group, and it seems it cannot contain users or groups from a different forest.  

Any suggestions?

I tried that.  A universal group can contain only global groups or universal groups from the same forest.

The article link from Akhater is exactly what I need...but I am going to give his response a low "quality" score because he is completely wrong about universal groups.  To quote , "A universal group is a security or distribution group that contains users, groups, and computers from any domain in its forest as members"
