How do I modify an Exchange distibution lists using the Outlook client?

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.
