Exchange Server 2013 Shared Mailbox not working

I have a simple Dell Server running Windows Server 2012 with 2 Virtual servers.  One is the Domain Controller and the other is my Exchange server 2013.  My problem:
I use to have a Public Folder setup with Mail enabled called Sales.
I figured out that a Shared Mailbox was the better way to do it
I deleted the Public Folder Sales
I created a Shared Mailbox Sales
when I try to send email to Sales@mydomain.com it bounces back
before I created the Sales Shared Mailbox I setup another Shared Mailbox called Info
When I send email to Info@mydomain.com it works just fine.

I created the Sales shared mailbox the same way.  Any ideas as to why it is not working?  I have deleted and created the Sales shared mailbox many times thinking I was doing something wrong.  It still is not working.

I just figure it out...my outlook was holding onto the old Auto populate address and when I typed in Sales it populated the To address with the old Sales@mydomain.com exchange address.  So it was trying to send to that address and not the new Sales@mydomain.com address.  So in Outlook when I started typing Sales I clicked on the X and deleted the cache of that old address and manual typed out the full address again.  It worked.

This is a email link for external people to send email to our server for our sales people.  I want all the sales people to have one inbox in their Outlook that they all can see and read emails from people requesting sales information from our company.

have you enabled "allow external people to email " on the mailbox properties?

where do I do that?  I mean I have lots of other email address on the same domain that is working just fine.  I did not do anything to the "Info" shared mailbox when I created it and it receives external email just fine

double click the shared mailbox -> go to mailbox features -> scroll down to message delivery restrictions, check the settings there.

I would prefer to not post that information, can you tell me what you are looking for in that message and maybe I can give you just that information?
