Distribution List Changes

Hi All,

I have a mail enabled distribution list with four users. Only those users 
plus the Administrator have rights on this group.

Yet a seperate user is able to add / edit or remove users to this group even 
though they do not belong to this group. The user does not even have admin 
rights and is able to make changes.

Let me know of any options I can try.

Thanks

Are you sure they're actually changing the group membership in AD, or are 
they merely able to remove a member when they use it to send mail?
If not, perhaps this user is a member of a group he/she shouldn't be in, and 
someone's mucked with security/inherited permissions.
Pls include your version & SP level of Exchange when you post in here, note.

Hi,

The user is able to change AD DL group membership via outlook. This user is 
not a member of any group other than Domain users, which has no rights on the 
group.

Exchange 2003 SP 2

Thanks

Hi,

The user has been given access, via permission delegation.

The easiest way to find this is not to see what groups this user is a member 
of, but rather check the security permissions on the actual group this user 
can change....

This user has no rights other than domain user group rights, of which will 
enable him to read the group only via the Authenticated Users group. Yet, he 
can still change the groups contents.

Thanks

Can you double check double click the DL, go to security tab, advanced
button at bottom.
Check to see who has "Write member" permissions.

So the user brings the Add/Remove members dialog up in Outlook and
mucks about adding and removing members... ok, I can do that too. But
when they click to submit those changes does it actually change them?
