are they a  member of any groups that have "deny"(explicit or implicit) on the 
mailbox like Domain admins or Exchange Servers Group?

        Hello all,


           I have recently upgraded my Exchange 5.5 environment to Exchange 
2003 and have one bug that is randomly appearing.  


        We use âsharedâ mailboxes for different purposes in our 
organization, and since the migration I have two users that are reporting that 
they can not âsend asâ the mailbox.  These reports are from two different 
users regarding two separate mailboxes.  Both users have âFull Mailbox 
Accessâ to the account.  There are other users with the âFull Mailbox 
Accessâ permissions to the same shared mailboxes and all of them are able to 
âsend asâ that mailbox.  What could be preventing these users from sending 
as the mailbox?


        My steps so far:

        1.      Removed and re-added the mailbox to their profile â no joy 
        2.      I added a separate Outlook profile, under the userâs login, 
as the Shared Mailbox.  The users are able to âsend asâ the mailbox (weird 
that it works this way but not when added to their profile) 
        3.      I have removed their permissions and then re-assigned them to 
the mailbox â no joy 
        4.      They have similar permissions on other shared mailboxes and are 
able to send as thoseâ  This indicates nothing is wrong with the Userâs 
domain account. 


        Very weird issueâ  And like I said it is rarely occurring (over 300 
shared mailboxes in our site).


        Any troubleshooting tips are MUCH APPRECIATED.
