forwarding group greyed out in AD delivery options

I've got an odd problem with distribution groups on an SBS2003 box. I've created a distribution group with 2 members, and added that group to a 3rd users delivery options. This seems to work fine, however the emails don't get forwarded. So I went back and checked the delivery options for the 3rd user, and forwarding was still ticked along with keep a copy of the emails in the mailbox, but the actual box where it lists the user / group that forwarding goes to is blank and greyed out.

I've tried recreating the group, recreating it under a different name, testing with different members in it, nothing seems to work. Any ideas as to what may be causing this?

    have you checked if proper email address is stamped to this dl and you have not restricted this dl so that only specific user or group can send email to this group.
