We want a user that is only able to create mailboxes (Enable-Mailbox) for any user in our AD on any of our mailbox servers.

So far, we've seen a range of suggestions as far as what permissions are required for that. Microsoft's documentations isn't clear either. Anyone know?

The Mail Recipient Creation role allows an individual to create a recipient. The Mail Recipients role enables a user to manage existing boxes.

It sounds like you want the Mail Recipient Creation role.
