I know this question has been answered on here before but in a slightly diffrent way......

1) In order for people to have access to other peoples calanders they need to have read access on their mailboxes.
2) So this means anybody can open their mailbox within outlook and "read" their mail?
3) Problem is i know someone is abusing these rights and reading peoples mail and i need to be able to prove this.....any ideas? I cannot remove read access of mailboxes or calendars will not work, correct?
4) I know theres last logon to mailboes but that could be a calendar access not a open of the mailbox and read......

What can i do without installing third party software?

You dont need to give read permissions on the complete mailbox for him to view your calendar. Exchange supports permissions at folder level and you can simply give read permissions using Outlook Delegat on your calendar to anyother user.
and other user will have to open only your calendar using - file - open - other user's folder - username and calendar.

Please have a look at the following KBs for more info ->

Correct. Actually this is usually done by users and not by administrators. I being the owner of my personal mailbox will decide whom should i grant access to my calendar and i should know how to do it from Outlook.

You just need to send them an email with the steps and i think, they will be able to do it by themselves.

Thanks,
