I would like all of my staff to have a generic inbox that is viewed by everyone simultaneously as well as their own personal inbox. How do I set this up? Other than clicking on "file" and then "open"

What email software are you using? Please specify the version of the software as well if possible, e.g. Microsoft Exchange 2007.
Sorry. Using Office 2007 on Microsoft Exchange 2011
In that case you can just use David's suggestion and create a shared mailbox. To do this in Exchange 2010 (no such thing as Exchange 2011 unless you mean SBS 2011 which uses Exchange 2010 anyway), you can just create a new user mailbox using the
New Mailbox Wizard
as per usual, then afterwards run this command in the
Exchange Management Shell
to convert the user mailbox into a shared mailbox:
Shared Maibox Name
>" -Type Shared
You will then need to grant your users access to the mailbox by right clicking on the mailbox in the
Exchange Management Console
Manage Full Access Permission..
. > click the
button at the top > select the user that requires access to the mailbox >
> repeat for all other users who require access > click
Last step is to add the shared mailbox to Outlook for your users. Steps to do this in Outlook 2007 are as follows:
On the left hand side of Outlook,
Properties for "Mailbox -
window that appears, click on the
button towards the bottom right > click on the
tab > click
> type in the name of the shared mailbox >
The shared mailbox should then appear underneath the users mailbox on the left hand side of Outlook. You may need to click on the
to the left of the mailbox to see the Inbox, Deleted Items, etc. etc.
If you have any staff using Outlook 2010 and at least Exchange SP1 installed on your server, the shared mailbox will automatically map itself to Outlook using the new Mailbox Auto-Mapping feature.

Thanks for this, after stumbling around briefly, I realized my errors and corrected them.
