New Exchange 2007 SP2 mailboxes not inheriting permissions

I have two exchange 2007 servers both recently upgraded to SP2. Prior to the upgrade
everything was fine. However now when I create a new user account, no-one can open
the mailbox. Not me as domain/ent admin, not the end user, no - one, the EMC lists it but
nothing else can access - will not accept email but no admin messages saying i failed.
On checking the full access permissions new accounts are created with only  NT Authority\Self

Whereas existing accounts have
domain\BES, domain\Domain Admins, domain\Exchange domain servers, domain\Exchange service
domain\Exchange public folder admins and NT Authority\self as having access.

I can manually go in and change access on the mailbox thru the gui, or using the shell. I can also use
Get-MailboxDatabase -server "myserver" | Add-ADPermission -User "Domain Admins" -ExtendedRights Receive-As
to add the permssions to all mailboxes in that store, but it doesn't apply to any new mailboxes added.

It worked previously, however it no longer works. How do I get new mailboxes to inherit the permssions
as listed above?

Thank you
