Yes of course but it depends on his set up, is he using exchange? what volume 
of mails are we talking about?

He would need to set up a forward on the collecting machine this is a 'poor 
mans version of email to the desktop'.

I've done similar for a number of customers, there are (Windows) packages out 
there that do more than that. I take it he has doubts about an employee?

There is an application that will record 
1. Every keystroke.
2. Emails in and out.
3. Will take a screen shot every "whatever you set it too"
4. Record Downloads

And loads of other stuff it will email you the results without any record 
showing up on the client machine it will not show up in the activity logs it 
is totally transparent.

Unless you have admin rights and know what you are looking for you will not 
find it. Before you go down this road you need to find out "why?" and to 
"What end?" that will determine what solution and what information.

Been there, done that, got the tee shirt. :)
