This is quite common until you actually type in that email address for the first time. Once you have used it it should populate for ever more.
So select FROM then Other email address, type it in and hey presto, works for ever more.

When you click on the From drop down there should be your normal email address and another entry "Other email address..."? Click on that and select the right address from the GAL this will prevent typos plus it is already validated.

Although the mailbox is shared it is possible you might not have Send As permissions, you will find out soon enough when you try to send. Just ask your administrator to fix that, it is usually an oversight. Also, check if the sent mail  is in the Sent Items of your mailbox or the shared mailbox, sometimes there are issues with this

Hope that helps
