Allowing users to edit the Distrubition groups in exchange 2010

We are running exchange 2010 and some of the principles want the ability to edit the distribution groups in the global address list. Is there a way to give them access to do this from their outlook?

You just need to make sure the Distribution group is Universal and you can follow this:
Users who are set as "Managers" for distribution groups have the ability to make modifications by default. Not sure what the guy in Tim's link was dealing with, but the MyDistributionGroups role is assigned to all users by default and grants the ability to modify groups that they "Own" or Manage from OWA and Outlook.

I see in the properties of the Distribution group there is a "Managed by" tab. I only lets me select 1 user as a manager. Can i create a security group and use that in the "managed by" tab?
