your right there Mr Rapier
It takes time and effort. There are already way too many other things competing for their attention. Just ask MLF.
The bears keep me busy
I have used the tools to track issues and monitor sudden resource usage as suggested by Nihil
The OP would need admin access to the exchange to use the tracking features...
So if he\she is a user....with no admin access....
I guess we have answered the original question with yes..it is possible
I know there are 3rd party software out there that can more easily track routes,editing, changes etc....mostly to ensure secure email............and I do believe exchange can also do most of these things....although that is a beast that I do not have the time to play with .....and is not required....
at this time anyway
too busy with the bears

Exchange has built in full journaling capability and has had it since 5.5 SP1. The journaling obviously changed in the way it functions when exchange was revamped in 2000.
It should be noted that this doesn't meet SCC requirements for Sarbanes Oxley retention. Mainly because there is no way to confirm the authenticity of it. For that you would need a product like Symantec KVS or some other "vaulting" product. Most of them rely on the same journaling functionality that Exchange provides
Message tracking is more so an administrative tool to assist in troubleshooting message delivery problems. As you can only track the header information it provides little in the way of journaling.
Some other good MS articles on the subject.
and covering the regulator side of journaling-

I have had experience with this exact problem.
My solution was to install a POP3 and SMTP sniffer that would create a log of all incoming and outgoing emails and save that to the server.
