one software you can evaluate is this Exchange Security Risk Auditor (ESRA)

it can be downloaded from http://www.c2c.com/site/products/activemailtools/esra/esra_tech.asp

Now coming the question how would that user assign

Only an administrator can grant this type of access, by using Active Directory Users and Computers. To give someone access to another users mailbox, you must have the appropriate permissions to modify user objects in Active Directory.

so you can check with who are the domain admins with permissions on exchange

If a user account has access to all mailboxes then it will be shown in either the Mailbox Permissions or the security permissions of each user account. You will only need to look at one as it will be an inherited setting I expect (so greyed out).

There are a number of ways that the setting could have been granted. However as you haven't given any version information it is impossible to tell you how. It is probably the service account method, but there are different ways of getting service account permissions depending on the version of Exchange being used.
