When trying to add a delegate in Outlook 2003 I am getting this error "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 have already tried what was suggested in Microsoft KB958443 Any ideas?

Did you checked if your account is not having any 'deny' access on that account ?

Try this:

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

Right click on the account where? If I go into ADUC> Exchange Advanced >mailbox rights, I see self and if i look at advanced then edit there is not an option for Write Permissions. Where can I find this option?
