"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Exchange Journalling should be the answer to your question:

You need to create a "journaling" rule and mailbox.  
 - First you create a mailbox that will capture all of the messages (e.g. "Company Journaling Mailbox")
 - You then create a journaling rule, by going to:
      Exchange Management Console -> Organization Configuration -> Hub Transport -> Journaling
 - Right-click in the "Journaling" field to create a new Journaling rule, and set the Scope to be "Global - All Messages", and have it point to the new mailbox you've created.

You can then use an archiving solution to pull the messages from that mailbox into an archive that you can quickly and easily search.  If you'd like, I can recommend an archiving solution.

How do I know that it is working?  Does it turn on automatically?
You can grant yourself "Full Control" over that mailbox, open it up, and look inside, o you can log into webmail as that user and see the journaling mailbox.
