I am trying to add a DL to the public folder on Exchange 2010, but get the message below

One or more users cannot be added to the folder access list. Non-local users cannot be given rights on this server

Any ideas?

Are you adding a Distribution group or a Mail Enabled Security group? Distribution Groups can't be granted permissions on things. Mail Enabled Security Groups can.

It will still be able to receive mail and send to group members, but it will also be useable for permissions.
