Sharepoint 2010 alerts questions

Are there any special steps to create alerts using a mail enabled security group from AD? I would like to subscribe all users from a certain group. Does it mean that if I add or remove users they will automatically start or stop receiving alerts?

And second question: is it possible to see all my alerts from all sites and site collection in one place? Preferably on My Site?

2nd question:  pull down the user menu in the top right corner (click your name) and you should see an option to manage your information.  In here is where you can manage alerts.

1st question: no special steps, do it like any other alert.  yes, if you remove them, and a sync has ran to your user profile service (I think), they will stop getting alerts.

Unfortunately it doesn't work. People receive notification that they were subscribed but alerts dont work.

As to the 2nd question it was about all alert from all sites.

Is this 2010?  Are there managed metadata columns on the lists that you are subscribing to?

It is 2010 and managed metadata columns are not deployed yet.
