Is there a way to nest security/distribution groups in Exchange so that for example all staff members are in departmental groups but the whole company distribution group just contains the department groups?

It seems I can add groups within another but the email addresses don't filter through. Any way I can get around this?

The answer is maybe.

What type of groups are you creating, which version of Exchange and level is the Exchange org at?

Using Exchange 2003.

 I need them all to be security groups but capable of being used as distribution groups.

Mail enabled security groups will do that for you.
Whether you can nest them or not depends on whether they were created as Global or Universal. Looking at the site I am on now, shows that if the security group is global then I can nest it in another group of the same type.
