Hi,

You can configure ‘send on behalf’ permission and ‘Send as’ permission to make others represent the Distribution List or Mail-enabled Security group  to write or reply emails.

For the detail steps, you can refer to the article http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2005/01/07/348596.aspx , which is also apply to DL.

In Exchange 2010, it is possible to swap between Distribution List and Mail-enabled security group. You can refer to the following steps:

Go to ADUC->select ‘Advanced Features’ in the ‘View’ tab->click Users->select Distribution Group you want to change in the right window->right click Properties->change Group type to ‘Security’ or ‘Distribution’

Hope this helps.
