The Delegates settings were not saved correctly. Unable to activate send-on-behalf-of list. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object.

Error message "The Delegates settings were not saved correctly. Unable to activate send-on-behalf-of list. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object."

I had an Exchange server 2003 standard crash & had to rebuild as a member server. The crashed server was an AD & PDC.  Since that time I am unable to assign delegates to any mailbox without receiving the previous error.  This problem appears to be related to the change in the exchange server being reincarnated as a member server.  I had to do a forced move of all FSMO roles to another controller when the problem occurred.  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

In order to resolve this you need to give Write Personal Information permission to the SELF account on the user who is trying to add the delegate. To do this, follow these steps:-
 

Connect to your mail server.
Open Active Directory Users and Computers, and then click Advanced Features if it is not already selected on the View menu.
Expand your domain, and then locate the users Organisational Unit (OU).
In the right pane, right-click the user who is experiencing the delegate issue, and then click Properties.
Click the Security tab, locate the SELF account, and then click Write Personal Information .
Make sure the Write permissions check box is selected, and then click OK.

Hope this helps.

Got the same issue going on but this Karl's solution isn't fixing it.

The server I'm working was rebuilt earlier this year, but not by me. I have a feeling that some extra security measures were taken to lock down the system a little tighter than is necessary.

The initial red flag that is making me believe that's the case is that inheritable permissions have been disabled for users. Should they be??
