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.

Natively it's not possible to access a shared mailbox via a mobile device. By default a shared mailbox is a disable user account so it has no permissions or passwords. In order to access the shared mailbox you can choose 1 of 2 options:

1. Enable the shared mailbox account and give it a password, and that way you can setup the account on your device just like a normal mailbox.

2. give a user full manage access to the shared mailbox, and then on the mobile device setup a new email account using IMAP but enter the shared mailbox email address, but user the credentials and user name of the user that has full access to the mailbox. See the below link to assist you with this setup.
