giving a user permissions to change GAL and distribution lists exchange 2007

Hi Guys,

I have around 20 distribution lists and the GAL and i need to assign a user the rights to add and remove from all of these but i have read that adding the 'managed by' permission doesn't do this and that i have to run a shell line for each one to give them access. Is there any way i can add them to a group or something to allow them to change permissions for all in one go or do i need to do this manually and if so then how ?

Thanks

If by EMC you mean E-Mail Client (Traditionalyrefered to as MUA-Mail User Agent) ...

To restate
i) Use Active Directory Users and Computers to assign a user account as the manager of the desired group (see fig1)
ii) Use the MAU (Outlook email client) to make membership changes to the group (fig 2) Select Tools / Address Book / {distribution group name} Properties. Click 'Modify Members' to change the users in this group.

Assigning a user to be the manager in the Manage By setting as you mentioned will allow the user to make membership changes to the group through the Outlook email client.
