I am running exchange 2013.  I am looking for certain emails for an individual, is there a way on exchange to open or search a certain user's email box without changing the password?

Or, is there a program that can be used, using a domain username/pass to be able to do the same, view any individual's emails, to search for specific emails?

The functionality is built in, via the Discovery system.
There is loads of documentation on this functionality on TechNet.

Start here:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298021(v=exchg.150).aspx

It will guide you through the entire process, setting permissions, doing the search etc.

not sure what's wrong with the link, but it keeps on spinning and spinning and it won't go to that website.

I tried that website internally and externally, from my web server, and I can't get there both ways.  Is there something wrong with the link perhaps?

Thanks, Dan

I have just tested it and it works fine.
If you put in to Google In-Place eDiscovery Exchange 2013 it comes up as the first hit.

You should read the entire section though, don't try and jump in. It is a complex feature, but once you get to grips with it, very powerful.
