Alright well, I'm stumped. I have  a distribution group "Group X"  in SBS 2003. I have modified the group to be managed by someone and checked write permissions on the security tab but to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

Your question is confusing, is it a security group or a distribution list? Make sure the group is distribution, select the Managed By option and also select allow user to change it via ADUC

Start Active Directory Users and Computers MMC console
Open the said group properties
Go to "Managed By"
Select the intended user
select the "Manager can update the list membership"
Depending on Outlook configuration (Cached or Not) it may take up to 24 hours for the user to change the members via Outlook.

Hey everyone I apologize for the delayed response. I never seemed to get this to work. Also, should you do this in Active directory? or the Server Management console.
Thanks!

Hi brainstormer,

Thank you for the response. So I tried it in active directory but it still would not work. I did notice however that in active directory this group is a distribution group and in the server management console this group is a security group. Should I create a new group?
Thanks
