How and what type of rights you need to use the Exmerge utility on Exchange 03?

I am trying to restore a mail box from back up.  I have done most of the part.  Now when I run the exmerge utility, it is not going thru. I checked the properties of myself and administrator, both of the accounts has DENY for Receive as and Send as boxes, and they are grayed out.  I created a global security group, created a user added the user to global group, gave all the rights, still I am having the same issue.  Any help is very much appreciated.

* Also that the "Domain Admins" and "Enterprise Admins" have got default DENY access to "Send As" and "Recieve As" permissions.

* So make sure that the account that you are a using to do the Exmerge is not a member of the above groups.

* Or else you could explicitly remove the DENY permissions from both the groups if you need to be the member of them

* And the below link might be helpful to grant yourself rights at the organizational level

Amit's Answer was right to the point.  Rudram's answer was very helpful, learned a registry hack, and used it too.  But I haven't tried to run the exmerge yet.  I will be doing it after hours today.  I think the problem solved though.  Thanks very much.

* Check the account that you are using is not a member of any group (either Domain Admins or Enterprise Admins or any other group that may have a deny permission)

* Else try using a new user account that would not be a member of any groups (just the default Domain Users) and then grant it permissions accordingly and try Exmerge

Good Luck (^_^)
