    Hi Morten,

    Thank you for posting in SBS newsgroup.

    To narrow down the problem, would you please help me do the following test?

    1. Add a new user using Add User Wizard to the distribution group. Try to
    send email to the distribution group, can the new user receive the email?
    2. Create a new distribution group and add the problematic users to the new
    distribution group, try to send email to the group, can these users receive
    the email?

    If the problem also occurs on the two scenarios, please help me collect the
    following information:

    1. Enable the Message Tracking logs. To turn on message tracking on a
    particular server, follow these steps:

    1) Start Exchange System Manager.
    2) Expand "Servers", right-click the server that you want to use message
    tracking on, and then click "Properties".
    3) On the "General" tab, click to select the "Enable message tracking"
    check box. This option logs information about the sender, the time the
    message was sent or received, the message size and priority, and the
    message recipients.
    4) In the "Exchange System Manager" dialog box, click "OK".
    5) To record the subject of any message sent to, from, or through the
    server, click to select the "Enable Subject Logging and Display" check box.
    6) You may find the log in the Log file directory section on General tab
    and please post it to newsgroup.

    You may also track a message by using the Exchange Server 2003 Message
    Tracking Center, follow these steps:

    1) Start Exchange System Manager.
    2) In the console tree, expand "Tools", and then click "Message Tracking
    Center."
    3) In the "Server" box, type the name of the server that is running
    Exchange 2003. To browse a list of available servers, click "Server", click
    a server, and then click "Add". You can search for a message that was sent
    from or delivered to a particular server that is running Exchange. You are
    only required to specify the server name.

    For detailed information, please refer to the following KB articles:

    821910 How to troubleshoot for Exchange Server 2003 transport issues
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=821910

    823864 Improved Message Tracking Features in Exchange Server 2003
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=823864

    2. We may also check the Event logs. To do that, please follow these
    steps:

    1) Select Administrative Tools and click Event Viewer.
    2) In Event Viewer windows, click Application, select log files regarding
    to it.

    You may post these logs which you have changed your private information to
    newsgroup.

    Thanks for your efforts and time on this issue. I look forward to your
    reply!

    Best regards,

    Crina Li (MSFT)
