How to send emails as "Accounting@company.com" by multiple users?

Our accounting dept. has multiple staff who need to send out invoices every day. Currently, they use their own email account to do this. Now we would like to let them use a general email account, e.g. accounting@company.com to send out invoices.
How can this be accomplished?
Thanks!!

"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.

you can make the accounting@company.com a public folder and give the users the send as permission. This will allow the users to send as the accounting@company.com and get mail in the public folder.

Here are some good links in case you do not know how to create the public folder:

Create folder: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb691104(v=exchg.141).aspx

Open an exchange management shell (powershell)

I would use a shared mailbox called accounting@company.com

go ahead and set the permission on the mailbox:

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity accounting@company.com -User <a user in the list> -AccessRights FullAccess

This will enable them to read and open the mailbox and see replies as a group.

then add send as permission.:

Add-RecipientPermission -identity accounting@company.com  -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee <accounting user>

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff935839(v=exchg.160).aspx

Users will be able to open the shared mailbox in outlook or in OWA and send and receive on behalf of someone.  you can also create a distribution list with accounting@company.com and each user so that anytime someone sends a message to that alias, everyone gets a copy.

The shared mailbox is nice but I find the PF to be better for the user as they do not have to open a mailbox to send as the user. They can do it from the current mailbox by changing the From address. An they all have access to the PF so there is no need to send email copies to users so the message is held in one spot saving space.

Depending on what version of Exchange you are using it is best to do this as a Shared Mailbox. From there all you need to do is provide Send As and Full Mailbox Permisisons and your done.

Several good suggestion given above by EE's. One more option from my end. You can use From field in Outlook. Where you can change the from address. However you need a mailbox for that address and user need permission to send. Once you set the permission. wait for OAB to download and then user will be able to send.

Apart from above, what application are you using for creating invoice. I have seen application has option to send emails also.
