In a shared mailbox (multiple users have access to the mailbox), is there a way to tell what user (what account) read the message?

Thank you!

No, there isn't. The best you could do would be to see who logged on last, and when the message came in, and make a best-guess comparison.

Your best practice would be going to server properties and setting up a diagnostics logging to MSExchangeIS->Mailbox
-> Logons
Then using Event Viewer to get information regarding mailbox access
There is no such logging as you want in Exchange, maybe third party
