Configure exchange 2k3 email to be used by several employees

I know I can set up pop mail boxes on multiple computers, but have never tried with exchange. I have been tasked with setting up one new email address on 3  computers in addition to existing exchange emails. Im not sure how to make it happen any help would be appreciated.

easiest way may be to create a distribution group with that email being that groups email and the three users being members.

otherwise
another user - that all three users have permission to see and send as.

the second method has the advantage of all users being able to see that an email has been read or replied to etc.

for the client - under the account properties, additional settings you can open additional user mailboxes - as you cant configure a second exchange account.

Another option is to create additional outlook profile on users' machines. close outlook, open control panel, open mail control panel and you can create profiles there and configure prompt for profile. Each time user opens outlook, it will ask for profile to choose. If they have outlook 2010 then no need to create profiles outlook 2010 profile can have multiple accounts.
Go to file, account settings and click on new under email accounts.

If you don't have outlook 2010 or creating multiple profiles is not an option then adding additional mailbox to profile as suggested by wolfcamel is better option but remember if any user deletes email in shared mailbox it goes to that user's deleted items, this can be fixed by registry setting

@Wolf
Create the new user in AD , then from each workstation _-> account properties, additional settings you can open additional user mailboxes

is that all there is to it?

Thanks

for the user in ad - you need to make sure it creates an exchange mailbox, and then you need to give full access permission to each of the 3 users.under ad properties, exchange advanced, mailbox rights - give the users full access
then
under exchange genral, delivery options, give them send on behalf permission.

So far the solution works
Is there a way to remove the "From userA on behalf of userB"  from emails sent?

achaldaveCommented:
The on behalf of permissions causes the behavior, since user A has full access to user B's mailbox, user A doesn't need on behalf of access, remove the on-behalf-of permission and add Send-As permission.
