i have 2 users, and they need to receive all mail addressed to an info@ address.
Also, if they reply to an email it ,that has been sent to the info@ address, has to be sent from the info@ address.
Changes, deletions etc made by user1 should be seen by user2 and vice versa.
Anyone that can help me achieve this?
Running SBS 2011
Using remote.domain.com to check email/ can install outlook if its necessary.

We have our primary orders@, info@ etc. addresses set up in this manner to allow "collaborative" use:
- Create a new shared mailbox via EMS: New-mailbox sharedTest –shared –userprincipalname Sharedtest@somedomain.com
- Add Full Access and Send As permissions for the shared mailbox via the EMC under Recipient Configuration -> Mailbox
- If using Outlook 2010 (or I believe 2007 with latest SP) the mailbox should appear automatically for any users with Full Access after restarting Outlook.
For sending from this new address properly, you may need to wait for (or force) the OAB to regenerate. If you try to use this new address in the From: field in Outlook and it doesn't validate via the OAB you will get an NDR regarding delegation/Send As privileges.
Two other issues to look at client-side:
- To route Sent items to the proper Sent Items mailbox (assuming Outlook 2010)
- To route Deleted items to the proper Deleted Items mailbox
If you are not going to be using Outlook for the clients, you will need to add the shared mailbox as a new IMAP account in your client of choice. The format for username varies depending on the client:
- Windows Live Mail: domain\Username\SharedMailboxName
- Thunderbird: domain/Username/SharedMailboxName
SMTP settings for any client need to use the straight domain\Username format without the Shared Mailbox.

I assumed that you are using the Exchange server 2010 in SBS 2011.
If the two users have its own mailbox, I think you need to create a mailbox then give the full access permission to the two users.
Towards the mailbox access permission, you could refer to the link below:
Title: Allow Mailbox Access
If you would like to monitor the actions or behaviors taken by different users, I think you need to use Mailbox Auditing logging, for the detailed information you could refer to the article as followed:
