We have an old "Customer Service" Security group sitting in AD. It does not currently have an email address. We are using Exchange 2007. How do I assign this security group an email address? I tried creating a new Distribution Group in Exchange, but it says that this object already exists and it points to the security group.

Not to familiar with Exchange 2007, so all help/ideas are welcome.

CustomerService@domain.com
This recipient e-mail address was not found in the recipient e-mail system. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please check the recipient e-mail address and try resending this message, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

This is what happens when I try to email.

What is GAL?

I do not see this group anywhere in the Exchange Management Console. I know for a fact that it exists in AD, but how do I grab it from AD, import it into EMC, and assign it an email.

First make sure the scope of security group is set to Universal, then Create Distribution Group and choose Existing Group option at the beginning of wizard.
