Would there be another reason (technical) for this situation or did someone inside our company (maybe outside too) is hacking his mailbox?
It sounds to me like someone did read some of this person's email messages. Most likely, they were using the person ID when they did this. I do not know how this would happen to random messages by accident (although anything is possible with software).
