        OK, since it is Exchange 2010, I am moving this to the Exchange forum

        Rough process for creating a contact:
        Go into Exchange Management Console
        Go to Recipients -- Mail Contact
        New Mail Contact and New Contact
        Enter details, including tick "specify the OU" -- just follow the wizard
        Once finished, locate new contact and go to properties
        Select Hide From Exchange Address Lists tick box on General tab

        To create group with manager
        Recipients -- Distribution Group
        Make it a security group!
        Go into Properties -- Group Information -- set Managed by Attributes
        (also look at Membership Approval tab)

        To give permissions to group:
        Find mailbox, right click, look at Send As and Full Access permissions

        (Note these are rough steps and should be researched / tested more fully)
