Report Server Subscription not mailing with normal users

Hello,

We have a SQL 2008R2 Reporting server, on this server there a few reports where users can add a subscription to receive a timed email.
When the subscription is made by me or another admin then the mailing works perfectly to every user.
If the subscription is made by a standard windows user with reporting admin privileges then the mailing fails with the following error: Failure sending mail: The report server has encountered a configuration error. Mail will not be resent.

I've tried modifying the rights of one user to sysadmin level on SQL without a result, tried an open relay smtp server in the reporting settings without any result.
I think that this will be a security problem but I don't know where to start or look, anyone a suggestion?

I assume this means a "a standard windows user with reporting admin privileges" creates a new subscription  In ReportManager right?
If you check the Security on the speciffic report in ReportManager, does the user has "Content Manager" role or what other predefined roles are assigned to that user or NT group by that mean.

Please see more about report admin priviledges at links below:

to clarify, it is idd a standard windows user with reporting admin privileges and he creates a new subscription in ReportManager

the user in question has for the moment the following rights in ReportManager in the specific Report:
- Browser
- Content Manager
- My Reports
- Publisher
- Report Builder

Normal the standard users have: browser, content manager & my reports.
As test this user is given the full rights on the specific report without result

The problem is solved as following:
- create new domain user
- modify rsreporting.config and only allow NTLM
- add user to the windowsauthorizationgroup
- modify report settings and reporting server run with that user
- make user in sql management sysadmin
- modify sql agent and let it run under that user
- delete subscriptions and re-add them
