    Default [SOLVED] Delegation of control over Server Distribution Lists?

    I'm trying to find an answer to this, and having no luck so far - what I would like to do is to set up a distribution list of our internal users on the server (and maybe that means an upgrade to 6.x or 7.x), and delegate control of the membership of that list ALONE to another user, without granting that second user any other administration rights. Is this at all possible, or do they need to come to me every time they need to add or remove users?

    Yes, this does appear to be possible with Zimbra 6. See Bug 11515 – role based delegate administration

    I was just now able to create a global DL-admin user. Setting up a user with rights to modify just a single DL should also be doable, but a little more involved as it will entail creating a custom set of ACEs.

    See Delegated Administration

    And thanks for asking this question. I may now delegate management of a few DLs myself.
