I'm completely stumped. The user has full control of the site (not the site collection, a subsite under a site collection) and on the specific list where he wants to apply information management policies. That permission is applied directly in both places and through a group in both places.
But, when he attempts to access the information management policy settings page, he gets an access denied message. Anyone have any ideas why that might happen? I thought you only needed manage lists in order to change IRM policies for a list.
