Office 365: Managing Distribution Lists in Outlook Web Access (OWA)
Office 365 Distribution Groups at Yale can be used for two purposes. The first is as a mailable contact list that is published in the Global Address List (GAL), the second is as a security group governing access to shared mailboxes and resource calendars.
In Office 365, a current Owner can accomplish management of the Owners and Members of a Distribution Group.

In Outlook on the Web (OWA) Click the Gear (top right)
Select Mailunder My app settings
Expand theGeneral section (on the left)

If you would like to addor remove a list owner select ownership in the list (on the left) of the Distribution Group window and use the plus (+) or minus (-) to add or remove users. Click Save when done.
If you would like to addor remove a list member select membership in the list (on the left) of the Distribution Group window and use the plus (+) or minus (-) to add or remove users. Click Save when done.
Note: An Owner can only manage the distribution group. Ownership of a group does not grant you Member access to that resource. For the Owner to receive mail sent to the group or get the same access to the resource the group is attached to, the Owner must also be added as a Member.
Note: If the person you want to grant access to has their email on the EliApps service, you need to email the ITS Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203-432-9000 to request they been added to the list. EliApps users can only be given Member access to a group, they cannot be Owners.)
