Shared Mailbox on Exchange 2007, Auditing, limiting certain folders

I have a bit of an interesting scenario:I have 60 users accessing a common mailbox. I've given them access to the mailbox through the 2007 EMC, however I have the following issues:

A)Mailbox is enormous, 25GB and growing
B)As mentioned, 60 users accessing it.
C)Messages get moved around and no one know how/where they went.

Does anyone know if E2007 allows auditing of individual mail folders/messages (Yes I am aware the logging would be ridiculous in size) and/or if its possible to "hide" certain user-created folders from other people within a mailbox.

My gut instinct from working with Exchange for the last 10+ years is not, but perhaps you guys know of a way or know of software that would make it possible to do these things?

1. It is not possible in Exchange natively to audit individual mail/folder. You can check below utilities.

2. You can try changing folder level permission inside mailbox to hide folders for certain users but I think that will be override by the mailbox permission which is set to FullAccess to access shared mailbox.
