Need help writing command line for win2k dsacls.exe to reset default user permissions

I am trying to reset the user permissions in win2k active directory back to the default, by using dsacls.exe from the command line.  I am following the Microsoft instructions from knowledge base article 281146, which I was referred to from article 320098, regarding the error message "You do not have the permissions to send the message on behalf of the specified User."  The error maessage occurs when another user trys to accept an assigned task from me.

I can not figure out how to write the command line for this software tool dsacls.exe.  The user name is Jim Mello, the server is SERVER01, and the site is prihomeinspections.com, the domain is DOMAIN01.  I have been trying to write the command line to lookup the user (Jim Mello) permissions, in active directory, to make sure I am in the right location.  After that, is was going to add the peramater /s to reset the permissions to the default.   Every combination I have tried has failed.  Would someone give me some suggestions please.  The RFC 1779 format is very confusing to me.  Thank you JIM

should be as simple as:
   dsacls.exe <AD-object> /s

what's the actual string of <AD-object> needs to be checked in you AD itself
sorry don't have any M$, so can't tell you the click&go methods, but if you have a dump of your AD (for example generated with ldifde.exe) then you simply can search in it, search for something  with "dn:" and "Jim Mello"
