exchange 2010 distribution groups - can't manage

Posted on 2012-08-23

Since upgrading our Exchange server from 2003 to 2010 I can't add or remove members from distribution groups.
I have added myself to as the Group Owner by adding to the Managed By list on the Group Information panel.
I read this article here and so have created a Role Group called Distribution Group Management which has the Assigned Role of "Distribution Groups". I have added myself to this role group.
I still can't add or remove members - the buttons are greyed out.

What am I missing? Please help!

    I had already assigned myself as Manager, so your responses didn't immedately answe the questions, but one of the blog pages indicated that the group should be a Universal Group. As soon as I made that change everything was OK.
