How to identify all Exchange for Office 365 DLs that a particular user is the Owner of?

This question is answered This question is answered

I am process of cleaning up our Exchange for Office 365 instance, and deleting a number of users that are no longer valid.

 

Is there a way I can identify what DLs these users are the owner of, so I can make sure that I reassigned ownership of that DL to another user before deleting the expired user's account?

  • Hi RG,

    Thanks for your post. For this case, you can use Powershell to list all the owner of the distribution group. To do this , you can take a look the following steps:
    1, conenct Exchange online via Powershell http://help.outlook.com/en-us/140/cc952755.aspx
    2, RUN " Get-DistributionGroup |ft name,ManagedBy" or "Get-DistributionGroup | foreach-object {Write-Host $_.name, $_.managedby}"

    Thanks, Neo Zhu
