You have to have one account that is mailbox enabled to share with the accounts.

1. Create an account, then choose yes to mailbox enable it.
2. You then go to the properties of the account/mailbox in Active Directory Users and computers.
3. Switch to the Advanced Tab
4. Click on "Mailbox rights" button
5. Grant rights to the other three accounts to do what they/you desire them to be able to do.

Be sure you are showing advance features in Active Directory:

Highlight "domain.com" in Active Directory Users and Computers, click on View, the click Show Advanced Features. (this will allow you to view the advanced page of the account/mailbox)

Hope this helps!!

You can also use the Delivery Options button on the General tab to give send on behalf rights......but the "mailbox rights" should do the trick.....

You can assign permissions to users on this mailbox and let them open it.
It is the easiest solution.
