Hey guys,

I would like to give a specific user or group the ability to modify all distribution groups members.  Is there a way to do this without adding the person or group to each distribution group?

Thanks

You should make the user or the group owner of the distribution list.

You misunderstand.  I want to give a user the ability to modify ALL distreibution groups without having to add him to each one individually.  We have quite a few groups.

Turns out I just needed to add the user to the recipients management group in the exchange AD groups

I figured this out by looking at the descriptions of the Exchange Security groups and Trial & Error.
Thanks this solved my problem as well. I love EE!
