Hello. There are two forests.

How to delegate a mailbox from domain B, to domain A ? There is a two-way trust relationship between them.

    Hi @Андрей Михалевский ,

    Based on my research and tests, I think the Exchange server doesn't provide the function of delegating user A mailbox to user B who is from another forest.
    I tried the linked mailbox, cross-forest mail contact and so far there are no methods could working for our case. They all failed with "You don't have permission to open this mailbox".

    I find one article that's about cross forest delegation using the Outlook client to sync their calendar on Exchange 2010: Exchange Server 2010 Cross Forest Delegation
    And here is a similar case about Exchange Cross Forest Shared mailbox delegation, hope those could help.

    Best regards,
