Exchange 2007 Mailbox Permissions

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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
