I don't believe you can see this in ESM.  You would have to open the mailbox either through a client like Outlook or OWA, but that won't tell you if they opened it and then just marked it as unread, or if it was actually never opened.

Also....
In outlook, there's a feature called read receipt, but it isn't reliable. It's suppose to tell you when the person opens an email, however the other user has the ability to just disable read receipts.

So no, there is no sure way to know if someone has opened your email.
