In Office 365 Outlook Web Access allows for individuals to manage distribution groups that the own. Originally the distribution groups option was found by selecting the GEAR in the upper right hand corner and selecting the options menu.
When selecting options the subsequent dialog has a GROUPS feature where individual users can manage the distribution groups they own.
In the current release of Outlook Web Access ( May 2015 ) when selecting the options button a new set of options is displayed. The groups option is not a top level option or sub-option.
How does an individual access the groups option to manage the groups they own? In this new options dialog is the OTHER selection. When selecting OTHER the following is displayed:
The OTHER –> GO TO EARLIER VERSION presents the original dialog to the user. This restores access to the groups function.
Using this new path individuals can access the functions to manage distribution groups they own.
