Hello,

Yes, you cannot send to a group that is not mail enabled.

Yes the distribution list is mail-enabled, but not the security group inside that.

I have tested it and it seems to work, just very slow?

It depends on what you want to happen.  You cannot nest security groups within a distribution group for security purposes.  Nesting a mail-enabled security group inside a distGroup for email purposes is just a bad idea.  

yes, sometimes you have to mail-enable a security group, but for the most part, you should create groups for their specific purpose.  Why not add the users from your secGroup to your distGroup as well?  That gives you more granular control should you decide later on that a secGroup member does not need to be part of the distGroup.

If the security group is not mail-enabled, email will not be sent to its members. If it is working, the security group must be mail enabled.
