Get-QADgroup is added by Quest's Activeroles Management Shell for AD, not native PowerShell commands - I assume you've added this?

http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx

Not sure if this will work, as I'm taking it from the manual (I don't have the tools installed):

$pw = read-host "Enter password" -AsSecureString

connect-QADService -service 'server.company.com:389' -ConnectionAccount 'company\administrator' -ConnectionPassword $pw

Get-QADgroup -Identity 'groupName' | Add-QADProxyAddress -Address 'address' -Type SMTP

Or possibly just Get-QADGroup 'Group' | Add-QADProxyAddress -Address 'smtp:address2@company.com'

I am not sure I understood your request you just want to add an smtp address for the group ??

$DG = Get-DistributionGroup DGName
$DG .emailAddresses += "smtp:test123@domain.com"
Get-DistributionGroup DGName -emailAddresses $DG.emailAddresses
