It is possible to use one BES with 2 Exchange Servers 2003? On Exc 1 there is domain xyz.com and on Exc 2 there is domain abc.com. Both domains will be used with Blackberry Handhelds.

BES can connect to any number of Exchange servers, but you are doing more than that. Are both your email domains in the same Active Directory and setup in the same Exchange environment?

Even with two domains or twenty domains and 20 exchange servers one server is leader of the pack unless you make them completly seperate domains physically.
So unless you have different physical domains just point your one BES at the leader it should work oky doky.
As for adding multiple exchange servers to one BES I would like to read the link on how thats done it sounds like fun.

At the moment we have one Forest tree for one (ADS)domain.
The other domains are only Maildomains.
It is possible to create a new ADS Forest out of the other domain and the BES accept this domain?
Or can we install a complete new Microsoft AD on a new server and make a trust between this two domains und implement the 2nd domian into the BES server?

I'm confused, is this an AD question or a BES question? I take the simple route. You have multiple domains or Forests, Trees, bushes whatever making one Exchange box yes?
Okay so one BES is sufficent unless you have an army of users.
Then as they say on the Taco Bell commercial, "I Tink we need a Bigga Box"

BES for Exchange has a functioning boundry of an "Exchange Organization". An Exchange Org has a typical boundary of a "Forest" ... however this can be overcome if required...
Being that you're in 1 forest, you're fine. Just make sure for any new Exchange servers you add that have BES users on them you set the proper permissions per the installation guide.
