I need to be able to use the Outlook client to modify existing distribution lists on the Exchange server. I thought the domain user that is assigned Manager to the distribution list on the properties of that list would be allowed to add or delete users from the list. The user is getting an error message stating that he is not authorized to make changes.

Find the Distribution List in Active Directory Users and Computers. Go to the properties of the Group and add the User Account of the individual to the Security tab and give him the permissions.

OK I will try that today. Server issues in another location took priority.

MrLonandB,

Please help me understand how a person can edit a server based list, i.e. an Active Directory distribution group, from Outlook?

Open the Address Book in Outlook. Find your Distribution List in the GAL and open it. Modify the Members.
