Send As Permissions in Exchange 2007

I am having trouble getting Send As permissions in Exchange 2007.  I have a shared mailbox that a dozen people need to have permissions to send on its behalf.  I have addedd  full access permissions so i can attach the mailbox to their client (outlook) with no problems.  Then add the same group to the send as permissions again with no problems.  1 hour later the send as permissions are gone???  So i figured it might be a problem with "duping" the group in both full and send as, so i have tried to add the users individually to the send as, still with no luck??

I have had this happen when adding full access permissions to a user account.  you must add the users one at a time then fully complete the permission change.  It takes awhile to do it this way but should get the job done.

I have never had this issue happen with a distribution group.

Is this a user account or a distribution group?

Here is everything you need to do: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2005/01/07/348596.aspx

with powershell:

Give "UserB" SendAs permission to "UserA"
[PS] C:\>Add-ADPermission -Identity 'CN=User A,CN=Users,DC=testlab,DC=local' -User UserB -ExtendedRights 'Send-As'
