Exchange Rights

I am adding a mailbox to an existing user. The user previously had an email address but it was accidentally deleted. I tried to add the email address back to the user but i am receiving an Insufficient rights message. The attachment shows what groups i am a member of. the second attachment shows  the error i am receiving. Any suggestions?

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

The most likely cause of this error is permission inheritance is not enabled on the account in AD.

Sorry i did go under my account under the security tab clicked advanced and selected "Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent"

It isn't your account that you need to check, but the account that you are trying to change.

Tried that too. still no luck.
fmfcuAuthor Commented:
any other places i can look to resolve this issue?
Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
Try a different account with admin rights.
Failing that, you will have to recreate the AD account.

fmfcuAuthor Commented:
i cant recreate the account in AD. It controls services and other user accounts.
Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
I have nothing else to suggest other than a call to Microsoft.
There is obviously a problem with the account, but if you aren't prepared to recreate the account to prove that, then there is not much more I can recommend.
