What is the purpose of User Group for ?

Forgive me to ask such question.
After I tried this product, I really don't know why have to create a User Group, such as Finance, Marketing, Production ... etc.

After assigned a user as a member of a Group, what benefit can we get? does we can sent a mail to all users those under the specify group for example finance@mycompany.com ?

The way it works is this...Let's say you have 5 people in 'Finance'. You would put all 5 people in the 'Finance' group. Then if you want to send an email to the entire finance department, you can send an email to finance@yourcompany.com.

If you are migrating from LS2004, your users ALIASES are still there, but groups are much easier to work with.

I had tried to send by finance@mycompany.com this time, I monitor the activity log, I saw the server strict sent to external instead delivered to local user group.

It's because there is no address called "finance@mycompany.com". Groups are just a way of organizing users, and you can't e-mail the groupname@thedomain.tld like you're trying to do. If you want to do that, I believe the only way to do it is to it is to set up a user account called "finance", then add aliases for all users you wish to get that mail.

Alternatively, you can send email to a contact group in Outlook or the Groupware client.

This knowledge base explains how to create a distribution list in Groupware and make it a public contact/group:
