In this scenario, you cannot remove the user account. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Changes to the distribution list membership cannot be saved. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object.
Note You can run the New-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet to assign a management role to a user account.
This issue occurs because the MyDistributionGroups role configures the read scope to MyGAL. If the mailbox of a user account is disabled, the user account does not belong to the list. The Address Book Service cannot find the user account when it tries to delete the user account that belongs to MyGAL. Therefore, the user account cannot be removed.
