Cause

This problem may occur if there are duplicate display names in Active Directory that are hosted on your global catalog servers. Entourage 2004 for Mac uses packaged MAPI libraries to assign delegation rights on the Exchange Server 2003 mailbox. These MAPI libraries require that each mail-enabled Exchange Server 2003 user has a unique display name. Additionally, these MAPI libraries require that this unique display name is not being used by any other user account in the organization.
