    That command will create the mailbox but you still need to assign permissions. To allow the users to access the mailbox you would issue this command for each user. You could also create a security group and issue the permissions to the group instead. This would be better if you had more than a couple of users:

    Add-MailboxPermission -identity "Sharedmailbox" -user user1 -Accessright Fullaccess

    If you also want these users to be able to send as this mailbox, you would issue this command:

    Add-AdPermission -identity "Sharedmailbox" -user user1 -ExtendedRights Send-As
