We have an email account that everyone shares.
It appears as a folder just like the user iinbox.
I did it before but I do not remember how I did it.
This mailbox holds all public correspondence that the company receives from outside sources or emails that are distributed to all.  The name of the email account is BDRN INFO.  All users have a copy of it on their Outlook, I need this new computer to abe able to have access to it.

you need to open the properties of this account in active directory users and computers and then go into the advanced tab and then mailbox rights
over here you can configure permissions for the users so that they can access this mailbox from outlook.

You have to edit the Mailbox Rights on the mailbox account in Active Directory. See http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/windows/mailboxrights/mailaccess.html for a procedure.

First you have to give that user permissions to that mailbox.

Then from within that users outlook profile click > tools > email accounts.

from there select view or change existing account.
hit next
select exchange server and hit the change button to the right...
at the exchange server settings > click on the more settings button..
at the  next window hit the advanced tab
under there you will see the mailboxes window and an add button to the right of it, click the add button enter the additional mailbox name that you want to be add and hit ok all the way and the new mailbox should then be listed...
