That was going to be my suggestion as well

I would suggest using a mail-enabled Public Folder for this solution.
After mail-enabling it, go into it's properties, and set the "Send As"
permissions to how can send as that name. THen go to Oulook, Public
FOlder properties, configure who can have access to it, and their
permissions Role level.
I used to work in a 5000 user system with 20 email servers. In such as
large environment, and I use the same mindset with small systems, it is
not taken lightly to simnply create another user account as a solution
when a team needs a common mailbox they can share access. That would be
like creating a Bob Smith mailbox, and giving permissions to the others
in the group. Bob Smith in this essence is a security principal that
has access to resources. Public Folders are not, and is a better suited
Public Folders are less of a security threat, since they are not a
security principle, that is somethuing you can provide premissions to a
resource (shared folder, printer, etc). If an attacker decides to try
to go after an email address that happens to be a public folder and
thinking it's a logon account, they will be wasting their time.
I hope that helps!
