Send As Permission failing

Not open for further replies.


We moved from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and experience some problems with setting Send As permissions on Public Folders.
All Public Folders have been transfered to the Exchange 2010 server.

When we want to give a user Send As permission on a mail enabled Public Folder we receive the following error:

Active Directory operation failed on DC1.dc.local. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Access is denied.
Active directory response: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-03151E04, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0
I found an article that previously did the trick.

Open ADSIEdit and check that the ownership of the new folder by going to Default naming context -> DC=domainname,DC=co,DC=uk ->CN=Microsoft Exchange System Objects -> right click on the object of the PF and select properties
then Advanced, Ownership and note the name of who owned the public folder (in my case the SYSTEM or sometimes even the old Exchange 2003 server)

Previously I changed the Owner from SYSTEM to the new Exchange 2010 (via ADSIEDIT not Client Permission) servername and then I could set the Send As permission for the user on the Public Folder.
But this trick is not working anymore on any Public Folder now.
When I want to change the Ownership from SYSTEM to the new Exchange 2010 I type the Exchange 2010 servername in the select user/computer let it resolve it's name but when I click on OK it's not appearing in the Change Owner To list
Yes. I have seen this bug and SP1 doesnt fix it. You can give SEND AS perms via adsiedit as well of course as a workaround.

Note, if you create a new pf in 2010, then it works as expected and you give SEND AS perms via EMC or powershell.

I have not tested yet whether SP1 RU1 fixes this.
We have indeed SP1 applied and the bug as described.
Good for pointing out the workaround by setting Send As via ADSIEDIT.

Are both bugs below known?
- setting send as does not work
- change ownership the new server is not listed in the " change owner to" list

Can you confirm this?

Thanks for pointing out RU1 is available for SP1
I dont know if they are known bugs as far as Microsoft is concerned. You may want to open a case with Microsoft.
In the cases I have seen, inheritable permissions are enabled.
Same here, inheritable permissions are enabled (on user and PF).
PS. [sidenote] if inheritable permissions are not enabled on user you cannot move it's mailbox.
I opened a case for this with Microsoft. We needed to go into ADSIEDIT (Default Naming Context), Microsoft Exchange System Objects and then set the owner of the mail-enabled public folder to "Exchange Servers". After that, I was able to give someone "send-as" rights to the folder. I found later you can also mail-disable the folder and then mail-enabled it again (this causes the owner of the folder to be the Exchange server you are logged into). If you have a lot of addresses assigned to the folder, though, you'll have to re-add them all after you re-enable.
