We recently migrated from a Hosted 2003 Exchange to our own Exchange 2007.  Previously we had a user allowed to add contacts to the Globabl Address List and maintain the distribution lists.  He makes several changes a week as there are hundreds of external contacts in the GAL.

We are looking for a way to give him permission to add external contacts to the GAL without giving administrative access to the Exchange Server itself.

User should have Exchange Recipient Administrator role for creating custom recipient. But this will allow user to manage all types of Recipients.
