Yes it is possible, with the right ACL in place, as the trust is transitive.

Yes, it is possible and quite common to have users in child domains have mailboxes in a parent domain or a different domain in the Active Directory Forest. The Organization container resides in the Configuration partition (aka “naming context”) in AD. As a result, an Exchange Organization spans the entire AD Forest. Recipients can reside in any domain in the Forest.
What needs to be done:
- <b>Run Setup /DomainPrep </b>in the domain where users or any Exchange servers reside (you’ve already done this for the parent domain where Exchange server resides. You will need to run /DomainPrep in the child domain).
- <b>Create a Recipient Update Service </b>(RUS) and point it to a Domain Controller in the child domain.
