Dist groups - Upgrade Ex 03 to 10 - cannot remove members using EMC

Just finished putting in our first 2010 server on the network.  Things are going fine, just coming across the little bits.

I need to remove a member from a Distribution List.

I went into EMC, found the list, clicked the Members tab.  However, the red 'X' is greyed-out and I can't remove the member.

Researched a bit, found some info on 'Upgrading' distribution lists.  I followed the procedure to upgrade the list (no problem).  However, the 'X' is still unavailable.  Note: the 'Membership Approval' tab used to be all greyed out, but now all those options are avail.

What do I have to do to allow me (the administrator) to remove members from a DL on the 2010 EMC?

Also try adding yourself to the "recipient exchange administrators" group in AD.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks for your help on this.  I converted the groups to Universal groups, and all is working as it should.
