Microsoft Exchange shared email account - best strategy?
Posted on 2014-10-12
I'm trying to work out the best way of doing this.
Company is using SBS 2011 with POP3 connector. Outlook 2013 on the clients.
Email address is email@example.com
There will be 2 members of staff needing to access this mailbox.
The options I see are as follows;
1) Set up a local user called accounts, and the 2 members of staff login to this account simultaneously. This would seem the simplest method, but does the simultaneous login have the potential to cause any problems?
2) Create a user called accounts, accounts1 and accounts2. Share the accounts mailbox, and have accounts1 and accounts2 login. How would I ensure that when they sent emails that they would come from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, rather than their own discrete accounts1 and accounts2 email addresses?
Any advice appreciated.....
