Hello

We are running Windows 2008 with Exchange 2007. I have created new Distribution Groups within Active Directory. I want to stop my colleagues from adding new users into these groups (None are Domain Admins).

My colleagues don't use AD to manage users and computers, but a program called ADManager Plus. Anyway, is there a way of locking down the Distribution Groups so only certain people can add/remove users?

Thanks in advance.

You can try setting up 'Manager' for the distribution groups. but as far as i know, ADManager plus also uses an account to get information from AD. Pls check if you are using a domain admin account for that

You should check which account the AD manager is using, make sure the Group security seetings are read only for that account.
