vacations have me left alone in today and I need to do a task I am not familiar with, so i am hoping someone here can lend a hand with some detailed steps?  I need to set up a group mailbox on our Exchange 2010 server.  This will be a mailbox that three users will use to check for inbound mail (from internal and external addresses...) and all three of them need to be able to send from the mailbox.   Can someone help me with how to go about this?  I have access to our Exchange server but don't do too much in there... and this needs to get done today.  Thanks!

Create the mailbox in the usual way through the wizard. A regular user mailbox is fine.
Once created, set the permissions. They will need both Full Access and Send As.
Finally turn it in to a Shared Mailbox through EMS:

Set-Mailbox mailbox-name -Type:Shared

Where mailbox-name is the name of the shared mailbox.

You should then be able to access the mailbox through Outlook and OWA if you have the relevant permissions.

If the permissions are likely to change frequently, then a further refinement is to create a group, add the users to the group then grant the permissions to the group. Then you can just add and remove users from the group and they will have access, no need to worry about the permissions cache in Exchange then.
