    The pqr domain functional level is Windows 2008 and the Xyz domain funtional level is windows 2003.
    We have Exchange 2007 sitting in the Xyz Domain. My question is can user's from pqr domain have mailboxes on the Xyz domain ?

    The forest funtional level is windows 2003

    AFAIK thats a supported configuration from MS. Have you tested it by placing a mailbox in the said domain?
