Needing to track logon to Exchange Server 2003 via OWA to discover origin computer of logon

I have a client who wants to be able to determine if users from their own office PC or home PC, are logging into OWA, and into whose account.  These users and NOT configuring Outlook locally for other accounts, but using OWA.  For instance, is John logging into Sue's email from his PC and checking her mail?  We are CERTAIN that folks know other people's passwords.  We don't want to change the passwords UNTIL we track down who is reading other people's email.  I have turned logging on to MAX in the System Manager for MSexchangeIS LOGONs.  I can see the logons, but don't know where they are coming from.  Can I turn some sort of logging on to track the IP address of who is logging into OWA?  Help!

Yes, this information should be available in the IIS logs (not in the Exchange logs).
