I currently have an Exchange 2007 server.  How can I grant a regular user rights to modify members of Distribution groups without granting them too much rights?

I solved the issue, but it was slightly different than what you explained.  Exchange 2007 & 2010 require this change to be made from the Shell.  The syntax is as follows:

Add-ADPermission -Identity <name of distribution group> -User <name of user> -AccessRights WriteProperty -Properties "Member"

The solution provided was for older versions of exchange... not Exchange 2007 or 2010.
