OWA logs all the data in the IIS Logs, which you can find in C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 server-side. In here, you will be able to find a log file which contains the path which was accessed, and the username it was accessed by.

Assuming your Exchange alias is bsharath, you would need to look for /exchange/bsharath in the logs, and then, beside this, you can see the name of the username who actually accessed your mailbox, as well as useful information about the IP address they accessed it from.

Not that I am aware of, no. There are several problems with getting data out of those log files - the first is actually parsing them and getting it into a meaningful form, and then the second is obviously detecting that it is actually your mailbox which has been opened, by which user etc.

There's another approach which uses the Event Log if it makes it easier for you:
