Changes to the distribution list membership cannot be saved" error message when you try to remove members from an Exchange Server 2010 distribution!!!

If you are un-able to modify the membership for DL’s you own after migration to Exchange 2010 couple things you will need to do to get this working.

here is the message , you might be getting when you try to group membership within outlook.


Issue: Users no longer able to modify Distribution groups they own ( they are specified as the owner of the problem DL) , trying to add , remove users into member list within outlook generating above errors

Log on to your E210 Server , open EMS


New-RoleGroup DistributionGroupManagement -Roles "Distribution Groups"


Add-RoleGroupMember DistributionGroupManagement -Member dedealoc


* In my case I have converted the existed DL to “Mail Universal Distribution Group *
