If your not going to be the admin of the exchange server you have no confidentiality -Integrity the only thing you will have is availablitity providing there is a good link up.

He can access any inbox he wants he is the one that is in control of it.

and then allow you to pull such audits whenever you like. If there is something you need to question then you can point to the audit.
