Office 365 Distribution Groups Lockout
Hi Guys and Girls
I've been asked to add a new member of staff to a Distribution Group in Office 365. I'm pretty new here and haven't done this before.
Our email is hosted with microsoft online so I log in, go to Admin then Security Groups (we're synced with Active Directory) and list all the groups. The group that I want to change has a padlock on it and I can't edit it. So I look for the same group in Active Directory (Server 2008) it's not there. The groups that are in Acitve Directory have sync symbols next to them and conform to the listing in Active Directory Users.
So how do I add someone to the Distribution Group?

I do not quite understand what you are saying, you should be able to edit the relevant distribution/security groups... unless i am mis-understanding you somewhere. Can you send me some print screens of the errors that you are getting and then maybe i can understand more what problem you are having...

Thanks for the response, James, and taking the trouble to ask. I wondered how ineligible my initial post was when I posted it in a hurry.
I've now found out that you edit those distribution groups in Outlook/ Options/ See All Options/ Manage My Organisation etc rather than through the Office 365 Admin page.
So problem solved!
