Is your account part of 'Restricted Accounts'

It will disappear every hour as a security precaution.

If you modify the security properties on the AD object "AdminSDHolder" it will not disappear.  The AdminSDHolder folder is what administrators get reset to every hour.  You need to enable advanced view in ADUC.

Here's a link that BB sent me when I had the same exact issue:

Gives lots about SendAs.

Also, your BESAdmin should be a regular user, not an admin.

Does this happens only with your account or with all the accounts.

It looks to me like your account is Admin account and it is part of 'Restricted accounts' where it will revert any changes made on your account, I would suggest you to use different account for email and not use your admin account for email

To correct the "Send As" issue I have outlined the steps below that I use to quickly resolve this error:

1. Stop the Blackberry Router service.

2. Open Active Directory and from the View menu select "Advanced Features". Then go to each user that will be added to the BES and open their properties, go to the security tab and add the user BESadmin and add the security permission "Send As".

3. Run the following script logged on as Administrator
Note: Only use this step if you have BlackBerry users that are members of Admin groups. Using best practice methods it is recommended that mobile user accounts aren't members of any administration groups.

dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=domainname,dc=c om " /G "DOMAINNAME\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 1: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=experts-exchange,dc=com " /G "EXPERTS_EXCHANGE\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 2: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=blackberryforums,dc =com,dc=au " /G "BLACKBERRYFORUMS\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 3: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=mobilenetwork,dc=lo cal" /G "MOBILENETWORK\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

NOTE: dsacls can be found in the Windows Server 2003 SP1 Support Tools pack: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=6EC50B78-8BE1-4E81-B3BE-4E7AC4F0912D

4. Wait 20 minutes and then restart the BlackBerry Router service.

5. Restart the BES server.


Additional Information

To globally apply Send As permissions to all user objects follow these steps:
1. Open Active Directory.
2. Select the "View" menu and ensure "Advanced Features" is checked.
3. Right mouse click on your domain name and select Properties
4. Select the Security tab
5. Press the Advanced button at the bottom on the security tab
6. Select "Add" and enter your Blackberry Service Account name (e.g. BESadmin) and select OK
7. When the permissions screen appears change "Apply onto:" to "User Objects"
8. In the permissions box scroll down and check the Allow box beside "Send As" and press OK
9. Press Apply and OK to exit
