In Microsoft Exchange Server Manager I'm setting up a new user and am setting permissions in under the security tab. What happens is after a 1/2 hour or so those permissions disappear back to the original settings.

Anybody have any ideas?

What permissions are you setting?
If the user is an administrator or a member of another protected group then Exchange will remove some of the permissions by default. That is what it sounds like you are seeing.

If you are an administrator and you are trying to set the permissions on your own account, then the behaviour you are seeing is expected. Microsoft made a change in the behaviour of the permissions that means that someone in a protected group (Administrators, Domain Admins etc) cannot have other permissions applied, they will be removed.

There is a very long MS article about this here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912918

Here is what is going on:

If you change the rights or the permissions on the adminSDHolder object for a protected account, a background task will undo the change within several minutes. For example, if you grant the Send As permission on a domain administrator object for an application service account, the background task will automatically revoke the permission.

Therefore, you cannot grant the Send As permission to an application service account for an account that is protected by the adminSDHolder object unless you change the adminSDHolder object itself. If you do change the adminSDHolder object, the access permissions for all protected accounts will change. You should only change the adminSDHolder object after a complete review of the security implications that may occur with the change.
