Auditing and reporting of non-owner mailbox access is possible with native auditing of Microsoft Exchange Server but often appears to be a time-consuming manual process. The difficulties are caused by a substantial amount of low-level information and noise contained in event logs.

NetWrix Non-owner Mailbox Access Reporter

NetWrix Non-owner Mailbox Access Reporter is a simple tool specially designed for Microsoft Exchange Server. It automatically audits users as well as administrators who gained access to mailboxes not belonging to them. The product features an automatic daily report delivery that ensures that the authorized persons are able to analyze all accesses made by any user during any time period. The reports contain detailed information on access to particular e-mail folders and specific files (messages, calendars) within the mailbox.

The table below shows a sample report. It contains a description of a User_01 daily activity in a human-readable and easy to understand format. One can see the User_01 performed several actions in all@wks166.local mailbox including opening folders, messages and creating a message draft.
