rights being wiped out/overwritten Windows 2003

Hello,

We have all windows 2003 standard edition service pack one servers, and are using blackberries through our Windows 2003 blackberry server and getting e-mail through our though our exchange 2003 sp2 server. Anyway, as you may know, we have to set up our default blackberry user account to have "send as" permissions for all of our end users who use blackberries to send and receive e-mails in Users and computers.

Anyway, whether I give the "send as" rights right at the individual user level, or at the OU level and set it so the rights filter down, and set the users to be able to inherit the send as rights, the rights that I assign either way seem to get completly erased whithin an hour or so. The blackberries all recieve e-mail fine, but when you reply or compose you get the red X. If i set the "send as" permission and send an e-mail while the rights are still how they should be, it sends fine. But within an hour the rights being assigned they are completly removed. Any idea what might cause this behavior and how I can get these rights to stay as I am setting them? Thanks!

That's very probably because the user accounts you're using are members of "protected groups" (Administrators, Account Operators, Server Operators, Print Operators, Backup Operators, Domain Admins, Schema Admins, Enterprise Admins, Cert Publishers).
Members of these groups are protected against security changes.
Check here for details and possible workarounds:

The "Send As" right is removed from a user object after you configure the "Send As" right in the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in in Exchange Server

Delegated permissions are not available and inheritance is automatically disabled

The print operators group was the problem here. Wee originally took everybody out of that group when we first set up our Blackberry server, but I forgot that was what we did to make the rights stick. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!
