"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I recommend creating a group, add those 5 users, then assign rights to the mailbox giving the group rights.
For Full Access run this powershell.
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity "MailboxName" -User "Groupname"  -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All -Automapping $false

Open in new window

The -automapping $false if you do not want them to mount to the users Outlook Profile the next time they open Outlook.

To answer what is better it depends what type of access you want them to have.  If you need to block access to certain folders then Sharing or give exclusive access to specific folders, but if they need full access then the command line above is what you want to use
This will give the folder permission desired results.
