You need to enable auditing on the Exchange Server. If configured correctly, it will then make logs in the Event Viewer when a user accesses a mailbox which is not their own.
Be aware that it will generate a lot of entries in the Event Logs, and logging only takes place when it is enabled - you cannot search retrospectively before the feature was enabled.

The steps you need to take are described in detail in http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Auditing-Mailbox-Access-Exchange-System-Manager-Event-Viewer.html.
