Insufficient permission when adding delegates


  • I am using Exchange Server 2007 and Outlook 2003.

    When I go to the Delegates tab in Options (Outlook 2003), I click on the "Add..." button and choose the user I wish to add.  The user appears in the list, and I hit the Ok button.  I get the following error:

    Microsoft Office Outlook
    The Delegates settings were not saved correctly.  Unable to modify access control list.
    You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object.  See the folder contact or your system administrator.

    Does anybody know what permissions this is referring to and how I may edit them so that I stop getting this error message?

    Thank you,

    Joe Mc.

  • I would be interested in hearing a suggestion of two on what this could be,  we recently have ran into this issue as well.

  • You would need to do the following:


    1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers, and then click Advanced Features if it is not already selected on the View menu.
    2. Expand Your_Server, and then locate the user’s Organizational Unit (OU).
    3. In the right pane, right-click the user who is experiencing the delegate issue, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Security tab, locate the SELF account, and then click Write Personal Information .
    5. Make sure the Write permissions check box is selected, and then click OK.


    Microsoft has an article on it
