the easiest thing to do as administrator would be to change the user's password and then log on to his machine, and thereby his emails.  He or she would just need to change his or her password on return.

If as an admin you're part of the exchange admin group, you should have mailbox access rights.

In outlook, go to options and then mail setup, email accounts, click to change exchange mail settings, more settings, advanced - see pic
