Granting user permission to modify distribution group membership in Outlook

Since upgrading our Exchange 2010 servers to SP3 Update RU4, a user has complained that they can no longer modify members of a distribution group.

As an administrator, I cant modify it either, but if I add myself as an owner to this group, which is a requirement for any group you modify\create now, I can modify it.  If I make the user an owner, they still cannot modify membership.  This is the case for new of existing groups whether the user is a member or not.

The error the users gets is as follows:

Outlook error when user add a user to a distribution group
Pre SP3, I'd run the following PS script:

Add-ADPermission -Identity "<Group name>" -User <User name> -AccessRights WriteProperty -Properties "Member"

But this doesn't work now.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your feedback.  Looks like EEhotline has the answer with resolution 3 being a possible culprit as the user connects to a different GC to Exchange, although  I've not had time to test any of it yet.  I will get back to you when I have.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Still not had time, partly because when I do have time, the user in question has not been available.  Hope to investigate further this week.

This appears to have been fixed in an update, as the user can now modify the membership of a distribution group.
