I have a quick question that no one in my department can seem to answer. We have an Exchange 2003/2007 environment. My question is this: If I were to create a Distribution List on the Exchange Mgmt. Console with lets say 3 people and on the Group Information tab I select an “owner” and check the box that says “managed by” and enter my Active Directory ID and go into the Outlook (2007) address book and try to modify members, I get a permissions error:
But the weird thing is, if I go into one of our Exchange 2003 boxes, and look in Active Directory object on the “Managed By” tab the option for “Manager can update membership list” is not checked. If I check that box, and then go into the Outlook address book it will allow me to update the DL.
Why would I have to go into Exchange 2003 and check that box even though the DL was created in Exchange 2007 ?
Hope this is enough information and any help would be much appreciated.
