Hi jskfan.

You can achieve that with a journal rule.
Take a look here on how to do that -> Journal rules

with Journal rule, do I need to create a mailbox for DistGroup1 and DistGroup2 ?

I checked Hub transport Rule I selected "Sent to People" , but when I click next, it does not show distribution list groups

Yes. Right Click on the Distribution Groups bellow the Recipients Configuration
Create  the New Distribution, Group1 and  Group2, then add the members that you want to belong each Group.
Then follow the link I mention on the post above for set the journaling rule.

That's it

If you want to send all mail received by Distribution Group1 to Distribution Group 2.

You have to put the Distribution Group 2 on Send Journal Reports to email address,
then select the Journal for recipients and Browse the Distibution Group 1.

Thats it, all the emails received by Group 1 will be forwarded to Group 2.

I tested your approach, it worked good.

I have create 2 distribution groups 1 and 2 and i put myself as member of both groups.
I sent email to distribution group 1 and the distribution group 2 got the email too.

in the body of the email, I put something " This test for forwarding from distribution group 1 to distribution group 2"

Now when I open the email destined to distribution group 1 I can see the body of the email.
But when I open the email destined to distribution group 2 I can see the message as an envelope kind of attachment, I will have to click on it to see the body of the message.

 
Is this normal ? or it can be customized?

I'm glat that I could help you.

Answer your question "Is this normal ? or it can be customized? "

Probably that is because the mailbox is a Distribution Group and this mailboxes are special, as you said, on your mailbox the email is displayed correctly.
