There are few modifications that need to be done for Users other than Administrator in case of Exchange 2010 environment. This issue can be successfully resolved by performing the following:

  1. Make an email address for the specific user in Exchange using Exchange Management Console (EMC)
  2. Add the user to Exchange Trusted Subsystem Security Group
    • Right click Trusted Subsystem Security Group and goto Properties
    • Click on the Members tab
    • Add the specific user
  3. Go to Active Directory Users and Computers
    • Right click on the RootSecurityGroup in Hosting
    • Click on the Management tab
    • Select the required user
This way, the desired Permissions will be granted.
