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?

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

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

Hope this helps!!!

Have you tried to use Shell to remove the members:

Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "Marketing Managers" -Member adam@contoso.com

I was able to solve the issue myself by converting the groups to Universal groups.
