Is there a way or a piece of software that can prevent someone from deleting an email message in a shared Exchange mailbox?  upgrading to office 2007 wouldn't be out of the question if helps.

Yes - create an archive of all emails as they come into Exchange.  We use GFI Mail Archiver - very useful and easily searchable for past emails.

As far as a security setting that would prohibit a user from deleting mail - none that I'm aware of - you pretty much have to give users control of their mailboxes just for organizational purposes.  If they can't delete their emails, they will just build up in their InBox.
