Need to reapply inherited permissions to my mailbox

Hello, I was troubleshooting an issue I was having with viewing my Public Folders in Outlook. Long story short, I opened the EMC (Exchange 2010 SP1) and removed myself from having full access to “my mailbox”.  My username was listed as having full access to the mailbox from inherited rights. I then readded myself with full access.

Now I have a weird issue... in Outlook 2007 (Small Business) I can now see my Online Archive, typically you can't see your own online archive (not in Outlook 2007 SM). Its acting like I gave myself full access permissions to another person’s mailbox, even though it's my own. Secondly, it now doesn't display my Task List (To-do-list), it says cannot display the folder.

This has everything to do with permissions at the exchange level, I'm sure of it. Is there a command to re inherit the permissions on my mailbox like it would have received if I had just created it?
