I just ran in to this yesterday. There is actually a KB for this

Even after this it wouldn't let me edit it. Then I deleted it, made a
new one and it worked fine.

Subject: [exchangelist] Distribution List permission mystery

I created an Email Distribution Group as an admin and I made my user

account the manager and checked the box that gave me permission to

membership. When I go to update the membership inside of the GAL, I get

following error:

Changes to the Distribution list membership could not be saved.  You

do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this

 What did I miss?  Is there anything more to changing the manager and

 allowing updates that I need to do.

I gave myself "Write" rights (really full control) over the group itself
as well.

One odd thing I noticed is that every time I go back to the Group after
log off, the box is always unchecked where it says "Manager can update 
membership list".

The list is a Global Distribution list and not universal.
