Send Mail Task migrating from DTS to SSIS

I have migrated a package from DTS to SSIS.  The Send Mail Task sends email to an Outlook group. This worked in DTS, but SSIS is asking for actual email addresses.  How can I send to a group?

Most groups have an email alias for example the SMTP address for example our DL-DBAGroup is DBAAdmins@MyCompany.com.  I then use a script task such as below to send mail.  Here is a discussion on the topic: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sqlintegrationservices/thread/7bde3030-491c-4ab7-ad9e-02ca5abad17b/

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Math
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
Imports System.Net.Mail


Public Class ScriptMain

    Public Sub Main()

        Dim mailServer As String = "MyMailServer"
        Dim fromAddress As String = "SQLServerNotification@MyCompany.com"
        Dim toAddress1 As String = "DBAGroup@MyCompany.com"
        Dim toAddress2 As String = "Person@MyCompany.com"
        Dim subject As String = "This is my subject: " & CStr(Today)
        Dim body As String
        Dim fileName As String = "c:\file.csv"


     
            body = "Please find todays file attached. The file contains checks job failures from the previous business

        Dim smtp As New SmtpClient(mailServer)
        Dim message As New MailMessage(fromAddress, toAddress1, subject, body)
        message.To.Add(New MailAddress(toAddress2))

       message.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(fileName))

        smtp.Send(message)


        Dts.TaskResult = Dts.Results.Success


    End Sub
End Class
