Posted on 2011-10-05

Hi All,

I have created a new user & mailbox through Exchange (SP1) management console, I have then given myself full access rights to this mailbox.

However, when I add it in the accounts section of Outlook 2010 it says I do not have permission to log in..

What have I missed?
