Create mailing lists

Today I had a ASM contact me and he wants to be able to create mailing lists. I played around with the privileges and the one privilege that finally allowed him to do this was "Manage troop members: Add, edit, or delete troop members". Is that really correct? He has “Unit level privileges” and I had to toggle this one to edit mailing lists? Am I doing something wrong? That seems like a lot of power to give someone just so they can edit mailing lists.
