All emails that pass thru the email server of a financial institution must be archived. When a FINRA auditor arrives on site, how would he determine that an email(s) may have been deleted deliberately or unintentionally from the exchange database? Is there a tool that can be used or is there a native exchange utility that can be used

hmm as a standalone there is nothing in exchange 2003 that i know of that would make you complaint
however, from your archving perspective, usually i believe finra asks for compliance to sec rules 17a-3 and 17a-4
you would need to consult your archiving solution (hardware/software/hosted) for letters of attestation stating compliance to these rules

if hosted, liveoffice they are the market leader per gartner and one good price point is unlimited storage model
if in house, symantec enterprise vault /w compliance accelerator agent, highly scalable + other agent add-ons available

both compliant to to finra/sec
