I have exchange 2007 SP1 with Outlook 2007 client. My boss feels that his emails are being read by someone else. He has changed his password but still feels this way. One of the things he would like is if he can tell WHEN his messages were opened. So if someone read his mail and marked it as 'unread', is there a way to see when it was originally open. Also, is there a 3rd party program or software out there to purchase to track everything with messages, MAPI clients, etc. ?

This is not straight forward, there is nothing native that is going to work perfectly, the most it will give you is a hint.

The best way to do it, I have found, is to set a trap - using a service like http://www.readnotify.com to tag a message specifically to see what is going on.

I mean, an email from his wife going through readnotify with the subject of "money" or "I have a secret :)" are things that will catch people who snoop pretty easily - as will messages from subordinates or superiors with subjects like "staff changes" or "RE: Problem staff"

Readnotify has a free trial, and provides a wealth of information in the reports - it is not foolproof, but it is mighty close.

Well the obvious question if he changed his password (hopefully to something strong), is who has read permissions to their inbox? I would think probably their assistant and the admin of the server and that should be about it.
