I have a few Active Directory users that keep having their permissions reset on the advnced security tab.  I check the box to have their permission inherited, but it gets removed and reset a few hours later.  Any suggestions?

Do you have any GPO's applying to the users?
Can you run the modeling wizard to see whats applying to them?

So a user has access to a folder/file by inherited permissions then a few  horus later then interited permissions goes away.
Is it on one folder/all folders..?

It is mainly affecting their ability to forward voice messages from thier exchange mailbox.  We are using unifed messaging for our VOIP and when that permission gets reset they are no long able to forward messages.  I need to have that setting remain "turned on" to "inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child objects". But it keeps getting reset and "turned off".

These users are (or have been at one point) member of a "protected group" (Administrators, Account Operators, Server Operators, Print Operators, Backup Operators, Domain Admins, Schema Admins, Enterprise Admins, Cert Publishers); check here for details:
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
