The problem with this is that you won't becable to move mail around either!

But you should be able to select DEMY under delete using the security tab on the properties of the mailbox.

I recommend you to go with archiving solution, so even if the user delete any message he will be deleting only the shortcut but the messages will be there in the mailbox archiving database
Try to find Symantec Enterprise Vault, its very good solution

Why not just journal that mailbox? That way anything sent or received will be journalled to another mailbox.  There's no need to pay for a 3rd party solution.

create a blind carbon copy rule for this mailbox on transport rules  (hub server), this will send a copy of each mail sent or recevied mailbox

I agree with the Enterprise Vault Solution.  Not only do you get archiving but it's usually 25% in size of Microsoft's journaling since MS doubles your mailbox (200% of data) while EV takes your data and compresses it by around 50%.  It will also allow users to delete emails in their Outlook but yet configured to be searched.  It will keep your information store small and efficient and support Exchange 2010.  

We have used E-Discovery for customers in legal matters and it has cut down legal costs by 80%.

As I have told you already, there is no way to do this in Exchange 2007.  It's not possible.

The AD permission will not help where Exchange 2007 is concerned.

Archving solution is not going to prevent messages from being deleted from the original mailbox.

There is also no requirement to purchase a 3rd party product when Journalling will do the job quite happily.

@ demazter, please read about the arciving solution by Syamntec because it will perevent to delete the original message, it depends on your configuration actually,

if the user delete any message it will delete the archived shortcute because the original message already archived in the archiving database, where you can restore the shortcut again to the user's outlook,
