I need to create role groups

I have been asked to set up "email enabled role groups" that users will be placed in describing their roles, then those groups will be placed inside account groups for an entire department. For example, the legal department would have role groups legal_paralegal and legal_attorney and those groups would be placed in the larger group for the legal department. I have just been going to the Exchange server and creating them in the exchange console under distribution groups. That way they are already email enabled and easy to create. I was wondering though, is that best practices? Is there a proper microsoft procedure for setting up roles groups? I want to to do this properly and do not want to do anything that will cause me problems later. All advice appreciated...thanks

Set roles really more or less exist in an SBS environment, but those roles are nore based on jobs.  If teh roles you are creating are solely for email distribution, then there'snoe harm in what you're doing.  they these groups are limiteing access to resources as well, then I woud go back and re-creates similarly named Secuitiry groups, or change the group to a Security group (if the group is created, usually the first option is preferred. )

in AD Group object types are either security, Distribution and the scope is either local, global, universal
you can logicaly create your groups based on ROLE

if you want to organize your organization chart on AD you can use OU to build your departments and sub-departments or divisions, and for exchange distribution group you can build what is called Dynamic Group for all users in that OU or child OU
