Sharing emails via exchange/office

Hello experts. I run exchange 2003 and office 2003. There are a few people in my company who will be going back with emails on a certain topic. They want other people in the company to be able to read the emails when necessary and have a central place where the emails can sit and be found by anyone interested. IM looking for the best way to do this. I was thinking of just creating a new email account and give all access to that mailbox/folders. When there is an email that is about the specific topic they can stick it in a folder and others can view whenever they need too.
Does this sound good or is there a better way?

Thanks

To elaborate on pamiken's comment, public folders are designed specifically to handle this. You can create a public folder, assign an e-mail address to it, and make it available to a selected list of users or all users. You can control the permissions as well as to whether a user can edit, delete, read only etc. The following article will give you a good introduction to public folders:
