What are the required permissions to view Delivery Reports in Exchange 2013? [Resolved]

According to the Mail Flow Permissions page the following roles are required to do Message Tracking:

  • Organization Management

The problem is user error. I discovered that I was looking at my permissions with the wrong cmdlet. I was using Get-ManagementRoleAssignment and should have been using:

Get-RoleGroupMember "Organization Management"
Get-RoleGroupMember "Records Management"
Get-RoleGroupMember "Recipient Management"

I've corrected the missing permissions and, as expected, everything is working after a logout/login.

It is not necessary to add the administrator to Organization Management or Records Management.

The solution to the problem is to ensure that the administrator is Mailbox Enabled in Exchange.
