What options are available for logging/monitoring access to mailboxes on an exchange server?  We would like to be able to keep a log of which accounts access a mailbox (and when).

Can this be done within the exchange setup or would additional software be required?

Thanks!

For Enable Mailbox Auditing you should install Exchange2010 SP1

This example enables mailbox audit logging for Ben Smith's mailbox.
Set-Mailbox -Identity "Ben Smith" -AuditEnabled $true

This example disables mailbox audit logging for Ben Smith's mailbox.
Set-Mailbox -Identity "Ben Smith" -AuditEnabled $false

To View the Mailbox audit
Get-Mailbox Ben Smith | fl *audit*
