Have users A and B added mailbox C as a secondary mailbox?

The issue was, we were adding the shared mailbox as an additional mailbox on the users mailbox. What we needed to do was add the shared mailbox as a second email account to the users existing profile ie Control Panel -> Mail -> Show Profiles -> Properties (on users profile) -> Email Accounts -> New. Then add the shared mailbox as you would when configuring the original users account.
 
Once we had done that we could then go into the properties of the Contact list on the shared mailbox and tick "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book"
