well it depends on what they want to see.  if it's email, you don't need the user's password.  if it's a folder you don't need the user's password.  i'm asked frequently to check on "stuff" & i don't know anyone's password but my own & administrator.  so, what is it they want to see?

go to the user's Properties in AD.  Go to the Exchange Advanced Tab.  Now click on Mailbox Rights.  Add yourself or whoever & then give Full Access (read may work but i do Full).  Now after you've saved that, open up Outlook under your profile or whoever you just gave access to.  Then go through the open additional mailbox process.  Tools - Email Accounts - Change - Open additional mailboxes.  put the username of the person in there who is to be monitored & voila!

On the users properties in the Active Directory User and computers MMC. There is an Exchange advanced tab, here you can assign mail box rights. Give yourself full mailbox access.

Then in outlook goto tools email accounts. View change accounts. Microsoft Exchange server. More settings advanced. Here you can attach to other exchange mail boxes.
