How about
1. create a temp user, join the user to the distribution group
2. configure in your AD to automatic forward this user's email to the public folder

Add the mail enabled public folder as a member of the DL and the PF will receive a copy of mail as you request.

- Not yet seeing sme (mail-enabled public folder) appear in Global Address List across the organization.  
- SME not yet an option to add as a member of distribution list within AD Users and Computers.

Will be patient and try again later.  Will update with progress.

You could use a Transport rule but you would have to construct this from the command line and it is not very elegant way considering you can acheive this by adding the public folder to the Dist.

From EMS Run

Get-GlobalAddressList | Update-GlobalAddressList

and try again.

In AD while adding member to Group...select it as Exchange Recipient and then add it in the Distribution Group.
