Tip: Assign and Remove Membership for Individual Users, Groups, and Contacts

All users, groups, and contacts can be members of other groups. To configure a group’s membership, follow these steps: 1. In Exchange Management Console, double-click the group entry. This opens the group’s Properties dialog box.
2. On the Members tab, click Add to add objects to the group. The Select Recipient dialog box appears. You can now choose objects that should be members of this currently selected group. Select the recipients you want to add to the group and then click OK.
3. To remove a member from a group, select an object, and then click Remove.
