You can do this either by creating a contact or creating a user account with a mailbox and setup forwarding.

As KenMcF said, you can do this only by creating a contact or user account with mailbox.

AD distribution list does not contain e-mal addresses, it contain only AD distinguished names of members.

Best regards,
Vasily
