Exchange, allowing a group to be the owner of a distribution list

Hello everyone, I have scoured the Internet trying to find the answer to this question. I thought I found the answer, but I found someone else that asked the question only to be directed to post the question in the Microsoft forums... no answer given.  OK... so I have turned here instead.

So... its easy to get a user to look after an Exchange distribution list, but what about situations where a group of users might need access rights to manage the users listed in a group?  They don't want to have to open a help desk ticket each time they want to have an individual added/removed from the distro list and they don't want just one person responsible for their list either.

I want to allow a group to be the owner of a distribution list, rather than an individual.  I have tried adding a group name but it won't let me... and of course, you can't add more than one individual, so that's out as well.  

Is this possible?

I appreciate any assistance you can provide!!!!

Thanks folks,
Robin

you can run the following

get-distributiongroup <GroupName> | add-adpermission -accessrights writeproperty -properties member

of course you can pipe this command with a list of users
