Picked this from another post of the same issue:

"I have fixed this now.

If anyone else runs into the same problem then you need to allow write access for the Exchange Servers group to the users AD security settings."

What Web Browser are you using to access your mailbox
IE 7, 8, 9?
If IE 9 is it 32 bit or 64 Bit

If you use another browser, like firefox hows does it go

If you access it via another PC, whats the result
