I believe you want a distribution group.

Red is correct, use a distribution group, then add the users you want it to go to to the group.

they want to send these emails from blackberry and they are using BIS, they cant send emails to the distribution group from a blackberry can they? does a distribution group get an email address assigned
Correct me if I am wrong, but I think you can only place one forwarding address if you go with Clony's option. I don't remember though off hand.
Or you could create a Distribution Group
Yes, a distribution group has an assigned email address then exchange routes to the correct recipients.

In that case is better to create a distribution group. And yes you can send emails to a distribution group.
