Security groups are security principals in Active Directory. This means that security groups can be set in the access control list (ACL) of a resource, such as a network share or public folder. Distribution groups exist for sending e-mail messages to collections of users. In a Microsoft Windows« environment without Exchange, there are limited uses for distribution groups. Both security and distribution groups can be mail-enabled. They cannot be mailbox-enabled because they represent a collection of users.

Also see the Chapter 4 in the Exchange 2003 Administration guide.
