Office 365 check if email reached our tenant or rejected

In an Office 365 E3 subscription/tenant, is there a way to check if incoming mail from a specific email address successfully made it to our mail store, was rejected for some reason, or other?  Trying to track down why a user is not getting mail from a specific user and the sender is not blacklisted, and email is not in spam/junk folder.  

When we used to have an on-prem Exchange server, there was a Message Tracking Center which, while basic, allowed us to identify things like this.

Does Office 365 admin functionality support this ability in another way?  PowerShell perhaps if no GUI?

Thank you

O365 has a similar message trace system. It's on the mail flow tab in Exchange admin on O365's portal. It has a bit of a screwy UI, though. When selecting the from: or to: address, you have to enter an external address and click Add to use it in the search.

I created a script that I run on a daily basis to report such emails: http://emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2016/12/More-PowerShell-for-Office-365--Devices-and-failed-emails.aspx
