How to disabled group management option from ECP and still allow the users to manage from Outlook

Michel de Rooij

AFAIK you can only disable ECP entirely, not individual sections. In addition, it seems only supported for multi-tenant hosted Exchange setups.

As Michel says you cnnot disable the feature entirely in ECP, however one thing you can do is limit what the user can do with Group management to match only what is available in Outlook (e.g. manage the members of the group).This is accomplished by creating a child Role Assignment policy underneath MyDistributionGroups that only allows membership management.

This article on the Exchange Team Blog goes into the process in more detail.
