Just wanted to know if anyone had seen or heard of issues using mail-enabled security groups rather then distribution list?

We are running Exchange 2003 and Windows 2003 Domain/Forest Mode AD. We still use the older style Distribution List from our Exchange 5.5 days are are looking at changing them to Mail-Enabled Security groups. I know replication issues with global vrs. universal group is there anything else I should be thinking about - any Exchange issues or AD issues happen when using mail-enabed security groups?

Thanks,
Mark

I always use mail enabled security groups. It allows me to use the group for both email and permissions.
