Shared Folder Permissions

Our network has a standard user account that our Front Desk employees log into.  This Front Desk user account has a networked user folder that is located on our file server.  All of our managers have access to this Front Desk user's network user folder.  

Our issue:  When a manager drops files from their account user folder into the Front Desk user folder it retains the permissions of the manager, the Front Desk user is not able to access the file.  The manager has to open the security/permission settings for the file and add the Front Desk to the permissions in order for the Front Desk to have access.

Are there some settings I have wrong or could change that would make it so that any files dropped into the Front Desk user folder gives the Front Desk user access by default for any files in that folder?

Our network profile is:
SBS 2003 SP2 Domain Controller
Windows 2003 R2 File Server
-All user folders are redirected to the File Server (D:\Users Shared Folders\user\My Documents)

Make sure the users have both SHARE and NTFS permissions on the folder in question.

The Front Desk user had no inheritance of permissions and it's permissions did not have ANY of the default settings; it was really lacking

With the permissions/inheritance broken from the main user share (D:\User Shared Folders\) I had to apply permissions and inheritance to all users from the main user share.

This affected all users so if there are any files that had custom permissions, these were reset and now all files/folders/users are using the default settings.

It now appears that when a file from a manager is pasted into the folder, access is available to the Front Desk user.

Thank you for the help!
