I haven't worked with 2003, but if you can't add a distro group using AD, then setup a regular user with the distro name and use forwarding to the users who need to receive mail.  so the email will come into the distro mailbox and then forward to all the users.

I want to add a DL to a Mail Box ( All the Users in the Dl should have access for the Mail Box)

Is That Possible?
