How to let user edit the Distribution list from Outlook 2003

I am trying to figure out best practices for allowing an office administrator to maintain the Global Distribution List from Outlook 2003, can't seem to be able to find it in any of my vast reference material.

It's not clear from your question which address list you are talking about. If you want the user to manage the Global Address List, which is the list which includes all mailboxes on the SBS server and appears in the Address Book in both Exchange and Outlook, then the user must be granted the rights over Active Directory on the SBS to add, modify, delete and make other changes to user accounts. For your average office worker, this is going to be a bit risky for you, and this risk is emphasised further since this is an SBS and it is critical that the complex OU structure must not be modified in any way.

If this is a distribution list you have created on the server and which appears WITHIN the Global Address List, then the user can easily be granted permissions to manage it. In the Server Management console, locate the Address List and press Properties. I believe you then need to find the location where you set the "Owner". Ensure the Owner is the user in question. Then, in Outlook, the user can view the properties on the list, press the Modify Members button, and change the list from there.
