Can't delegate tasks in Outlook/Excahnge or resend own messages

Enviroment: Exchange Server 2000 Standard on Windows 2000 Standard SP4 serving Outlook 2000 SP3 clients running on Windows 2000 Pro SP4 stations.

Problem:
I keep getting the "You do not have permission to send on behalf of .." error when using Resend Message from my own sent items. The same error is also comig when trying to do task delegation. given how delegation is such a useful feature have MS can't have switched it off by default. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for responding Marc. I came across something similar on Slipstick. This works great for Resending message but not for delegation because Outlook won't allow me to make the From field appear and change it to my account/display name.

The problem seemed to be cured by a reinstall of Exchange 2000 and applying SP3. This was forced on me by another problem as I was hoping to avoid using the sledge hammer approach to solve the delegation issue.

Anyway everything seems OK now and my darling users can delegate tasks, distribute meeting requests etc. to their hearts content.
