Can't manage distribution group from Outlook with Exchange Server mailbox

I am the owner of a Distribution Group in my exchange environment. Whenever I try to modify a member using Outlook it gives me the following error. Please see attached screenshot. error-1.png
I have tried to use this article but it doesnt seem to help.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2586832/can-t-manage-distribution-group-from-outlook-with-exchange-server-mail#r1

I was able to successfully complete the steps in Step 1 but getting Errors in Step 2.

Can i get any assistance with this please. We have an older Server 2k8R2 and Exchange 2010.

I upgraded Powershell to the latest version on that box.

When attempting to use Groups to Manage the DL I was able to successfully complete Mode 1 - Set Ownership of a Group. But when i get to Mode 2 (Modify the ManagedBy attribute for one Group) I get the following error : WARNING: Didn't Find any valid objects in Owning Group.

Hi there! :)

As a start, you may want to try deleting any error messages from the resolve Problems & Solutions section from the farm page?

How about this? Do you know how to enable the MyDistributionGroups setting on the Default Role Assignment Policy?

Unfortunately I do not. I see you are doing this from the exchange admin center in o365. We have a hybrid environment at our location, so I assume I would need to do this from the EMC?

I looked but not sure how to do this in the EMC. I uploaded a picture of the same page you were on in the admin exchange center.
