Hands-on Exchange rights management

Rigorous Rights

Group Memberships

The Membership approval page in the properties of distribution groups presents several configuration options that allow you to decide whether the owner's permission is required to join the group (Figure 6).

Recipients can now join distribution lists and also remove themselves from the groups by using the Outlook Web App and selecting Options | Groups .

As you can see, you have many ways to delegate rights and configure distribution groups for low-maintenance overhead after setting them up on Exchange. With a little effort and some modifications to rights, administrators can save a huge amount of time managing groups of users during operations.
