I'm drawing a blank, I have a group name set up under Windows 2003 and Exchange 2003 and when I send a message to group@domainname.com, I want the email to go to each user of that group.
How can this be done?

You have to have an exchange account created for the group if it's just a security group, otherwise, just check the box for Distribution.

AD has two different types of groups: Security and Distribution.  To get an SMTP address, it needs to be set up as a Distribution group, or you need to add Exchange extensions to the Security group.  Security Groups do not, by default, have an email address, but Distribution groups do.

If it's already a security group, right click it and go to Exchange tasks and establish an address for it.
