Multi-Domain Issue Opening Shared Mailbox

Hi All,

I have a multiple-domain organization with Exchange 2007 and 2010 servers installed in domain X.  A user (Bob) from Domain Y cannot open a shared mailbox, even though other users can.  A copy of Bob's account with the same password exists in both domains.

When Bob logs in to his computer specifying domain X\Bob, it works fine.  However, when he logs in using Y\Bob, this is where it fails.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
David

You need to add permission for domainy\bob on the mailbox.

add-mailboxpermission -identity sharedmailbox -user domainy\bob -accessrights fullaccess.

If Domain X is used only for exchange server, I suggest you convert all the user mailboxes to linked mailboxes.
