For a particular user/mailbox an account can be added to the Send As Permission however that account periodically disappears from the field and the Send As permission contains no entries.
This permission has been added several times through the Exchange 2016 - Exchange Admin Center (EAC). This permission will stick for what seems randomly minutes, hours and even weeks more recently. However it seems to remove itself periodically. It has stayed applied across server reboots and updates. But periodically the permission is no longer applied. An attempt to add via Exchange Management Shell using the Get-Mailbox "userMailbox" | Add-ADPermission - User "mailboxWithAccess" -ExtendedRights "Send As" as has not stayed applied.
The permission is not being applied through a group but by directly adding a user. The user being added to the Send as permission has a different email domain but both are part of the same Active Directory Domain. There have been send as permissions applied the same way though EAC to different mailboxes and so far none of those mailboxes have had the Send As Permission disappear.
The affected user will receive a message in outlook when sending on behalf "This message could not be sent. You do not have the permission to send the message on behalf of the specified user." and then it is noted the permission is once again missing.
Thank you for your assistance.
