Do I need a mailbox for an e-mail enabled distribution group?

I have recently taken over from the IT Manager and been asked to give access to HR the recruitment e-mail.  The e-mail in question is tied to a distribution group but there is no mailbox set up for it.  There are no members in this group at the moment.

Can I assume that without any mailbox and the fact that AD is not running on the exchange server, this group actually doesn't work or do anything?  I am assuming it was at some point directing e-mails to somebodies inbox.

I think I just need to remove the e-mail address from it and set up a mailbox in Exchange instead.

Some clarification please.

Thanks

If there is no member on this distribution group the email send to the attached email address is delivered no where.

If you need the email send to this email address you can remove it and attach the address to your mailbox or just add your account to this distribution group.

Thanks very much.  You gave me my answer that all I had to do was add the recipient(s) to the group.
