Restrict permissions to access or to give access to user mailbox in Exchange 2003

My goal is to restrict IT administrators to give access to a user mailbox.
I have Ex 2003 on Windows 2003 servers and Window 2000 DC's. How can i restrict adminstrators who have domain admin rights giving access to other user mailboxes.

I know currently a domain admin can go to Exchange Advanced tab then to Mailbox Rights and give full control to any user he wants and also to him self. I need to have an exchange admin only the ability to give rights to other users mailboxes.

cdava i do not think what u want to accomplish is possible....domain admins carry a very
big gun and in an organization such as yours where there are more than one, a smart ars
one can be a  headache....most u can do is enable logging on ur exchange server and see who is logging in to whos mailbox(now this is not easy if u have OWA and delegation)
and due to the fact that domain admins can delete event viewr log files and even if they did not delete the log files it will be a daunting task for a large organization to check them
u want my opinion....have a friendly chat with them and explain what will happen if they get caught and that u are watching....they will understand...
i tell u what i did for an organization such as urs once...i came up with a trick...i asked managment to give out a memo that logging in to someone elses mailbox without approval(either from the other user or mangement) was a serious violation...and will be followed  with immediate termination.....IT WORKED....
