you can't
the user is the mailbox owner and hence can delete any email from the mailbox

OK..I understand.  Let's say for instance it is a shared mailbox.  The users are accessing the shared mailbox by opening the account in Outlook therefor having two accounts open.  They will have their main exchange account and up under that the group mailbox.

Now is there any way to keep users that are not owners of the mailbox from deleting messages?

if the users have full access on the shared mailbox then they can delete the emails
if they have been delegated read only rights then they will not be able to delete
users can also access the shared mailbox as an additional mailbox in their existing outlook profile
