Group Permissions for public folders Exchange 2007

I can't get group permissions to work for public folders.  I created a mail enabled Universial Security group called 'Group1'.  

This command works well when I give a single user access, I can 'post' to the public folders fine.
add-PublicFolderClientPermission -identity "\New Folder1" -User johnsmith -AccessRights author

When I give 'Group1' permissions to a public folder and I try to 'post' a new message it says:  'You don't have permission to create an entry in this folder....blah blah blah...'

Any ideas?

Permission on group work well only if your group is mail enabled. Add a email on your security group and then, it will work.

u mean make it so that my security group has an email address.  it already does.  It's a mail-enabled security group that has an email address.  I've also placed two 'members' in this group.  did you mean something else?

thanks for trying to help Moreau37, this wasn't working for me because I originally created the distribution group from Exchange 2007.  You must first create it from AD.
