Exchange 2010 mail enabled Public folder with forwarding to a distribution group

I am working with a mail enabled public folder labeled as "Quotes".  It has a public email address of quotes@companyname.com.  This had been originally set up with a forward to a single user.  I was asked to change this to forward to a distribution group, simple enough.  I created a Distribution group "Quotes Recipients", enabled unauthenticated sending to the group, set the forward within the public folder to forward to this distribution group, delivering to the folder and then to the forwarding address.  This is working, HOWEVER every time you send to this address, internally or externally, you get a bounceback from exchange.  Please note, the message does get delivered correctly, just everyone gets a bounceback.

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

quotes@companyname.com
There's a problem with the recipient's mailbox. Please try resending the message. If the problem continues, please contact your helpdesk.

Who are the members of distribution group?

I would turn around things a little bit.
I would setup distribution group with email address quotes@companyname.com and set up public folder and all other necessary user mailboxes you need to deliver to as members of distribution group.

oh wow... did not even think of that.  flipped it around distribution group now holds quotes@, public folder now holds quotesarchive@ and is a member of the distribution group.  similar bounceback.

quotesarchive@customername.com

Obvious it is a FP problem.
Have you ever had exchange 2003 in your organization?
Take a look at this article:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?
