Exchange 2013 Distribution Group membership edit

We have a client who wants certain users to be able to edit group membership in Distribution groups from Outlook.
I have tried various powershell commands and EAC but still cannot get this to work.
They are running a on-premise Exchange 2013 Server.


Anyone have any ideas?

The best approch here would be to make sure that you have a Mail Enabled Security Group with all of the users that you want to manage the DL.

From there, make sure that group is listed in the Managed By section in the EMC.

Another thing you can do as well is find the DL in ADUC
- right click, select properties
- click the security tab
- click advance button
- add the Security group you created earier and give them full control over the DL.

Doing that you will allow you users in that group to be able to add and remove users from the DL.

I had this same exact issue with some users. You need to use the

Set-distributiongroup -id "name of group" -bypasssecuritymanagercheck -managedby useraliasorsmtpaddress

The bypasssecuritymanagercheck is what you are missing and will give your users access. Try it on one of the users to confirm.
