send as "distribution group"

We have a distribution group for the project team that has 3 members. These users now want the ability to send emails from this email DG address.The DG is called Projects and is mail enabled (projects@domain.com) I have tried adding the permission using the shell command:

Set-DistributionGroup -Identity Projects -GrantSendOnBehalfTo UserName

But when the users send from the projects@domain.com address they get a failure message saying that they don't have permissions to send as for this user.

What am I missing?

Accepted solution from above link:
You would need to create a mail enabled user that has a name like your distribution group. You would then have to give each member of the distribution group permission to send on behalf of the new mail user.

Do you want to SEND AS or SEND on BEHALF OF - the two are different see:

Hi, I should point out this is is SBS 2008 & exchange 2007.

I've created a DG (global distribution) in AD called projects and added the 3 users as members

created a DG in Exchange called projects

Added permission in AD group "send as" & "send to" for the 3 users

They still get a permission error when trying to send as projects@domain.com

To make the security tab visible in Active Directory Users and Computers in Windows Server 2003:

Click Start, point to Administrative tools, and click Active Directory Users and Computers.
Click the View menu.
Place a check beside Advanced Features.

Then Open DG goto security group add the user and give "read" and "send as" permissions to the user...!

sure it will work.

why i am reiterating this again means it works for me with this same process...!

premqlitz - I've tried that multiple times and different ways it still doesn't work. I even waited the 2 hours to ensure that exchange had synch'd. I've tried applying the permissions via powershell as well. I've tested the "send as" function by giving myslef permission for another user and that works fine, so it's not a send as issue.

Has anyone here actually got "send as a distribution list/group" working on Server 2008 & Exch 2007?

Got it working now - For SBS 2008 it has to be a mail enabled security group created via the server console.
To add the send as permission this is the powershell command

Add-ADPermission "Group_Name" -User "domain\User" -ExtendedRights "Send As"
