I have a weird problem with Task Scheduler.  Non of the tasks work with our service account. We have created a bunch of tasks and no one but the creator can edit.

Did you give the user the ability to work with schedule task? Backup Users have the ability or you can go into User Rights Assignments to add this user to these permissions

Do you think task manager doesn't like execute things off mapped drive or \\servername\share ?
If I go directly to the share and doubleclick on the script it works fine and sends me email it was ran.  If I schedule it via the task manager it still say ran in the task scheduler history but in reality it's not.  Doesn't sent email. Very weird.

Alright so you have a batch file on a network drive? Need to make sure the account running the schedule task has the proper permissions to run Tasks  and have permission to access the network drive
