Exchange 2007 Cross Forest Address List Question
Hi,Let me start with some background info. Our company was recently purchased by another company. We will be setting up a 2 way trust between the domains but I am not sure at this point what each side will have access to. We are both on a Windows 2003 domain with Exchange 2007.What I want to do is create an Address list with all of their Exchange receipients in it. Once the trust is setup what is the best way to go about this? I know how to create an Address List iN Exchange 2007 but I really don't see a way to set a new one up that will go cross forests.One thing I was doing a little reading on was ILM 2007 which will sync the GAL. I am not sure this is what I want at this point if there are other options.Any info you can provide is appreciated!Thanks,Person_TX

First, you will need to use a GAL synchronization solution such as ILM, MIIS, or the free IIFP. Once agents are setup, Contact records will be created in each domain whichcorrelate tomail-enabled AD accountsfrom the opposite domain. These records will be added to the default Global Address List automatically. However, you can also create a custom Address List which filters only Contacts with proxy address ending in "" of thesource environment.I use IIFP often for exactly the scenario you've described and refer to the this article frequently...
