Access Denied Problems

The following problem occures when I try to manage my SPS using the

It's not possible to use functions like Check-In or Check-Out. This
doesn't depend on the user role. The only thing that works fine is to
delete documents. Therefore I've got to be author/coordinator, of
cours. To view the Version History is not possible. I just get an
error saying "Access Denied - You do not have permission to access
this item. "

Also it's not possible to personalize the dashboard. I get the form
to change my settings, but if I try to save the changes, the same
error-message "Access Denied - You do not have permission to access
this item." is returned.

There's no difference wheter I enable Basic Authentication or not.

The other thing  that you might want to check is the security at the
workspace level. In SPS admin, you need to right click on the workspace
and select properties. On the security tab, you will find the list of
accounts that have access  to the workspace and what roles have been
assigned to them. I have had problems  before where the NTFS security is
fine, but the roles defined within the actual Exchange database (where
SPS data is stored) are incorrect.
