I am just implementing Exchange 2003 into our organisation. Our test install all worked fine but in our Live implementation we are getting these errors.

    On further investigation this is only happening for one user (me). What i wanted to do was only add 3 mailboxes to test integration into our domain. The other two mailboxes have created with no problems.

    If you turn on 'advanced features' in AD Users and Computers, click on the User properties that you're having an issue with - click the SECURITY tab - click on 'advanced' and check inherited permissions there.
