I am using SharePoint 2010. I have a site which gives Contribute permissions to some SP Group. Inside this SP Group I have a AD group. This AD group has is from type "Security".

Is there some differance when I change the group type in the GUI from "security" to "distribution" or do it by commando (Enable-DistributionGroup -Identity "Account Officers" )? Because when I change it in the GUI, mailing to AD is working fine, but security on a SP site not.
This is what I mean with GUI:
