What you need to do is find a tool that reports on:

  • Security set on the mailbox object in Active Directory.
  • Delegation set at the mailbox level.
  • Security set on a per folder basis inside each particular mailbox.

Third-party tools that provide reporting on mailbox security and delegation include Quest MessageStats and NetIQ AppAnalyzer. Searching for "Exchange reporting" in your favorite Internet search engine should provide you with a list of other third-party reporting tools that provide similar functionality.
