Hi team,

A silly question but I need confirmation. If an admin created a distribution list group and added a user as the owner of the Dl. Can this user (User is not admin) be able to add or remove member from the DL via his outlook?

Thank you for your help.

    Ok, thats different. You wont be able to manage 365 groups via the Address Book in outlook.
    Those are managed this way:

    Yes, that will work as long as the group is in the same forest ( i.e. the group is not on-prem and the user is in Exchange Online) and its allowed by policy ( which is the default)
