   Okay, here is what I think is going on...  At least in our org.
   My exchange 5.5 environment has 4 sites.  This issue with the DL's is
occuring in only one site...  It seems that the tech support (in the site
having the issues) has rolled out Outlook 2003 against my recommendation.
The issue I have with Outlook 2003 are weird issues that result from the
Outlook Cache Mode being enabled.  Well it seems that the owner of the DL's
in that site is making edits, but when logging out of Outlook at the end of
the day, her Outlook 2003 client is editing the DL's as they are cached in
memory.  Thus automatically making the changes.  I have asked her to disable
the Outlook Cache mode of Outlook 2003 and the issues have stopped.
    Hope this helps with your issues as well.

Chris, it's good to know I'm not alone here; I've been seeing this lately as
well. I'm pretty much the only person who adds/removes people from DLs in my
org, and I've been hearing a lot that people have been dropping off lists. I
haven't found anything pertaining to this on the MS KB. Maybe as Exchange
5.5 nears the end of it's supported life, more and more of these bizarre
things will start happening.

Hello all,
   I have an exchange 5.5 environment...  I have users that are complaining
that their Distribution Lists are randomly dropping users and adding them.
Any idea what can cause this?  Is there a way to see who last edited the
   I have verified the following - 
Each DL has one owner and they swear that they have not made any changes....
There are only a total of 2 people with permissions to make DL membership
changes other than myself (exchange admin) - they too state they are not
making the changes...
I would like to know if there is a way to track the changes, or view who
made the last edit.
Thanks for any assistance.
