Modify Global Address List Through Outlook

I have a Windows Server 2003 R2 Native domain.  I am running Exchange 2007 Enterprise.  I recently had a request to add a couple of email groups to the GAL, which also need to be modified on occasion by non-admin users through Outlook.  I read that the 'managed by' section of the list properties is the correct place to set this up.  After setup, all appears to be working properly.  However, I noticed my test user (domain users group only) can modify any of the lists in my GAL, not just those that the user is defined in the 'managed by' section.  Why does this user, and I presume all my users, have rights to modify lists and where can I change this?

Did you modify some permissions into the AD structure or via adsiedit.msc ?
check the advanced security on the group (ad object), to see if some users or groups have the permission to modify, that they should not have

Hi
Did you actually noticed that you can change any group AND SAVE the modifications ??? Cause in fact you can modify any group membership from outlook, until you try to apply the changes..

Number of support tickets are opened for that problem, so begin to check that you really can modify the groups and SAVE the changes.

Yes, I can modify and save.  On one machine, I login as a domain users with no other group membership and I can add users to a list and save it.  I then checked on another machine and the change shows up immediately.

I have all my groups in a single OU.  At some point during testing, I must have delegated rights to my test user.  This is why my test user was able to save.  I created a second test user and I am unable to save.  Thanks for the suggestions.
