hello.

i have created distribution groups and security distribution groups in exchange.  i want to have these groups opened as additional mailboxes for the users.  exchange does not resolve the group name, but it will resolve only user mailboxes, not group mailboxes.  anyone know why that is?  how can i fix this?

Distribution and Security Groups are not mailboxes, so you can't open a mailbox...that isn't.

Create one user mailbox named for example Itdepartment. give all the it guys permission to open that mailbox and send on behalf. in the it department guys outlook open that mailbox as second mailbox. that should maybe do what you need.
you can also go to the mailbox properties and configure it to forward all mail to another address, and choose to leave the original email in the source mailbox or delete it.
using this features will for sure help you.
