Hi Exchange geek,

Thanks for your quick reply.
This document describes the process trough powershell (For a user to have the ability to manage distribution group membership they must be assigned the Write Members active directory permission. This can be done in ADUC, but I find PowerShell much simpler.)

I would like to do this trough ADUC not powershell. Do you know howto do this trough ADUC?

Thanks, Thomas.
