Unable to stop fax service on SBS2003 (Permissions problem)

I'm currently setting up a domain user with slightly less rights than a domain admin but enough to perform daily administration.

It was all going well until I discovered that this new user isnt able to stop the Fax Service (occasionally needs restarting). I can't think of how to grant access to do this and preferably without giving it access to stop/start/restart all services.

I'm probably going about this all wrong bacause this user is now practically everything but a domain admin.

Currently a member of:
Domain Power Users
Domain Users
Fax Operators
Remote Desktop Users
Remote Web Workplace Users
Server Operators
+(Anti-virus and WSUS groups)

Luckily i've started setting this up a good 2 weeks before i go on holiday so i have time to get it sorted.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the response oBdA, from briefly looking at that solution it seems quite invasive, but i'm more than willing to have a play in the test enviroment. I should get a chance to try this a work tomorrow and post back.
