Yes you can rename a security/distribution group - just click on it and change it
]
Email will continue to be sent to the email address that you assigned to the group when you set it up - if you want to chnage the email address you will need to do that seperately.

On the E-mail Addresses tab, add any additional e-mail addresses that you would like, and optionally change the default one.

When you are renaming a group, it is a good idea to do it in AD Users & Computers in the main console, rather than on the properties window, as you can't change all the names in the properties window.  Right-click on the group and click rename.  Type the changed name and press [Enter], then you will have a chance to review some of the other names AD and Exchange use.  Then review the properties page to complete the job and review the changes.
