I have an SBS2011. I would like to give users rights to modify distribution group membership  via Outlook. If I open Outlook as domain admin, I am able to add and remove members. If I open Outlook as a user (who is listed under "Managed by" for the distribution group along with the domain admin), I am not able to modify it. The domain admin is the owner of the group and the user is not.

How can I configure the distribution group settings or the user account settings so that a user or a security group of users can modify membership through Outlook without being the owner of the group?

Thanks.

Thanks. The RBAC did not work. But the AD permission did. I added "Write all properties" rights and the user is able to add and remove members to distribution lists.

What is the repercussion of this "Write all properties" rights? What else does it allow the user to do besides modifying distribution list membership?
