How do I track if message(s) are received and deleted in Exchange 2003 mailbox

Hello Experts,

I need to track and document if a user received and deleted messages from a sender for the past 6 months. We are running Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 Server. Due to the limited resources of our e-mail server we have message tracking set for only 45 days.

Can anyone suggest a way to do this? Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

besides restoring message logs from a backup and breaking into the users mailbox, I don't see any way.
