On our distribution lists only administrators can add/remove members.

How can I give others permission to do so as there is no permissions on the dist list object in AD ?

TIA

Hi,

I assume that the distribution list that you mention is an Active Directory security group. You can set security rights on these groups. In AD Users & Computers, you click View and check Advanced Features. Then you go to the Properties of the group and you should have a security tab.

An other possibility would be to make the people who have to manage the distribution list Account Operators. If I'm not mistaken, Account Operators should also have the required access privileges to manage security groups.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Yep thats it.

Its a distribution group as opposed to a security group but looks like the principle is the same.

Ill certainly look at the account operator as well.

Im trying to delegate some duties without giving all staff admin rights. Obviously can be done, just trying to work it out :)

thanks again.

Distribution group, that's what I meant. Sorry about the confusion. That's what you get when you try to do 15 things at once.

Anyway, I'm glad you got it to work.
