|Subject:||Merge or trust?|

I'm looking at the various options available and I'm not sure what would be
the best thing to do.
Here is the current situation:
On my side (domaina.com):
Forest/Domain functional level are set to 2003.
Partner side (domainb.com):
VPN tunnel between us.
What I want to do:
Since we are running 2003, our partners asked us to move their mailboxes to
our server. That shouldn't be too hard.
But our 2 domains are not in the same forest. Not sure what would happen if
I restore mailboxes from another domain on my server.
What would be the best way to resolve that?
Basically I want users from domainb to access mailboxes on domaina while
keeping everything else separated.
Would a 2 way trust between the domains work?
And if I need to merge the forests, how do I do that?
Looking for opinions.
