I have a global security group defined in Active Directory, not email enabled - used for security only.  However all clients belonging to it are mail enabled.

I have a public folder defined in Outlook 2003.

However, I cannot seem to assign permissions to the folder based on the security group.

I do seem to be able to use other security groups that are defined identically, with the one exception of they do have an email address associated with the security group.

How do I assign permissions based on a security group without assigning an email address to the security group?

I have tried going through Outlook from an Owner account.
I have tried going through Exchange System Manager, but for this folder "Directory rights" are disabled
