Nope, you can¹t use a front-end server from one org to access mailboxes in a
different org. 

This could change in E2K7 as the ?front-end¹ servers there are not required
to be domain members (thankfully) but I suspect they will need to be
associated with the Org in some way.

In any case, sounds like you¹re looking at additional OWA capabilities.

Now having said that, instead, what if you popped an ISA server into your
DMZ?  That could be used to reverse-proxy OWA for both orgs (different URLs
of course) but I¹m not sure if you would get the easy publishing
capabilities or have to play a few games to get the second org exposed
correctly.  In E2K and E2K3 you get OWA automatically on the mailbox server,
so pointing ISA at both the original (E2K3) and the second (E2K in this
case) server to expose OWA should work.

Subject: [ExchangeList] OWA Access via different Exchange server

Previous environment: x1 Exchange 2000 Server on Windows 2000 Server SP4

Current environment: x1 Exchange Server 2003 SP2 on Windows Server 2003 R2 -
OWA, Outlook RPC over HTTPS, mailbox server, etc.

The Exchange 2000 server has been brought out of semi-retirement, shipped to
the USA, brand new mailbox stores and storage groups were created, and users
from a different Exchange ORG and AD forest have been migrated to this
server. Is it possible for remote users on this server to access their
mailboxes via OWA? Or is a Front-End Exchange server mandatory?

Thanks,
