Monitor Outlook activity without Exchange Server

I have a customer who has a 5 PC network with a mixture of XP and Win7 machines on a Workgroup.  He is running Outlook on all PC's a each machine retrieves and stores its own email.  He is worried about staff leaking info and is looking some way of tracking what people do on Outlook.  When they logon, who they email, when they delete emails etc.

Is there anyway of doing this without exchange?

"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.

>>> Is there anyway of doing this without exchange?   <--- Not really. The email run in this way for most of us individuals would be private.  The only way I can see (and I have experimented with it on my own computer) is to run a packet sniffer and look at packets. This is not really a practical solution.

So two answers:
1. For Outlook run individually as per above: No.
2. Anyway, a person could print an email and cart information out, or even copy their PST file to a USB key and cart information out.

Seems like the only way to accomplish this is to install a "surveilance"
program that records everything that happens on the computer to a log, there
are numerous thirdparty applications for this (many of them originally
created for other purposes....).
