You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object. -- Adding access to another users mailbox
Posted on 2006-04-04
Server Configuration is win2k3 SP1 with Exchange 2003 SP1. User is using Outlook 2003.
I have two users created in active directory. One user is tsmith and the other user is members. I created members so that multiple people could view the email that comes into that account.
First I went into active directory and opened 'members.' I then granted mailbox rights to user 'tsmith.' (delete, read, change, take ownership and full mailbox access)
I setup outlook for tsmith by adding 'members' to tsmith's profile. (control panel, mail, email accounts, view or change email accounts, change, more settings, advanced tab, add)
The mail box is added to the profile. I can view the email within the members email account. I can open the email. I cannot reply to the email or send. I recieve the following error if I try:
You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object. See the folder contact or your system administrator.
The odd thing is I added the members email to another users account with the same rights as tsmith. The user was able to reply to mail in the members inbox.
I logged in as tsmith on 3 different machines and checked all of the setting son each machine to make sure that it was not the user workstation or outlook. I have basically narrowed it down to ad or exchange.
If it is unclear what exactly I am trying to do I can post some screenshots if it would help.
Thank you for your time.
