Outlook Delegate setting not saving




When you try to add a delegate, Outlook also tries to grant "send on behalf of" permission to the delegate by default. This permission is written to the public Delegates attribute of your user object in the active directory.  The Outlook client will be connected to the global catalog server but it will not be locally connected to your domain. This is why the public Delegates attribute cannot be written to your user object in Active Directory.  Moreover, the SELF object does not have the Write Personal Information right on your Active Directory user object. To configure Outlook to enable you to add delegates without requiring you to grant the "send on behalf of" permission automatically, click “Fix link”. Then click Run in the File download dialog box, and follow the steps of the wizard.  Exit Outlook and start Registry Editor. Then, do the following:

For Windows Vista:

Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or click Continue.

 For Windows XP:

Click Start, and then click Run. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or click Continue. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:


If you use policies, click the following subkey:


Note: x.0 in the above registry key represents your Outlook version. Please use one of the following values.

Outlook 2010: 14.0

Outlook 2007: 12.0

Outlook 2003: 11.0

After you select the subkey that is specified in step 3, click New on the Edit menu, and then click DWORD Value.

Type IgnoreSOBError, and then press Enter.

Right-click IgnoreSOBError, and then click Modify.

In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.

On the File menu, click Exit to exit Registry Editor.

After you add the registry value, you can add a delegate without having write permissions to your own user object on the global catalog server. When you do this, a message that resembles the following message is logged in the Windows Application event log to help track the event:

Source: Outlook

Category: None

Event ID: 27

Type: Error

User: N/A

Computer: computer_name


SOB error ignored

I hope this helps.
