Using a security group as a distribution list

Can you use a security group as a distribution list? I didnt think so but I need some confirmation.

Can you add a security group to a distribtuion list (so that it emails all the groups members)?
If so can you rename the way the groups Name appears in the GAL?

For some reason I ahve a super user saying that he read somewhere that you can use a security group as a distribution list as well.

Calrification needed ... thanks in adviance

This is exchange 2007 ... KCTS can you expand on the answer. The article is pretty inforamtive but it doesnt answer all questions.

Does this mean that the security group would fall under 1 email address - hence emailing the address reaches all group members?
