The distribution list will contain external to the company email addresses.

Hi,
Create a distribution list in the AD and on the properties of it there is a tab called "managed by" where you can add a user and check the checkbox "manager can update membership list". Then a normal user should be able to do some maintenance on it, not all though.

However external addresses I think need to be added as contacts in the AD first to be able to be added in the distribution list. (done by an admin)

hope this helps a little

I second MadJax. That's exactly how it works.

If that's the only way,OK but that's a PITA for a user to update. They would need access to ADUC for that.

Actually the user does not need access to ADUC. At least not if the external contacts are created by an admin. They can manage the DL through Outlook address book. Just right-click the group, select properties and then change membership as desired.

Not really what I was hoping to hear, but that's MSFT's fault not yours.
