Cannot open exchange manager

When logged on through terminal services as the administrator, I try to open exchange manager, I get the following error:

"Exchange System Manager could not initialize MAPI because the current user account does not have the SE_CREATE_GLOBAL_NAME privilage on this computer.  Log in using another account that has this privilage, or grant this privilage to the current user account.  All local administrative accounts have this privilage.  To grant this privilage, log on to the local computer using an account that is a member of hte administrator's group, and grant this privilage to the user account in local security settings.  Exchange System Manager will now exit when you click OK."

This doen't happen when I log on the local machine as administrator, I only have the above problem through terminal services.

Required to create named file mapping objects in the global namespace during Terminal Services sessions. This privilege is enabled by default for administrators, services, and the local system account.

User Right: Create global objects.

NOTE: Windows XP, Windows 2000 SP3 and earlier, Windows NT:  This privilege is not supported.

Not an answer.  How do you enable/grant this for terminal services users?
