My management wants to secure the e-mails in their mailboxes. They do not want the administrator to be able to read their e-mails.
Without encrypting the e-mail, is there any way they are able to secure their mailboxes, while at the same time admins are able carry out the admin tasks on their mailboxes?
I don't think this is possible without encrypting the mail file. You could set the ACL very tight...just owner = Manager and LocalDominoServers=Manager. But even then, an admin person could use the certifier ID to create another copy of the owner's ID file and log on with that ID to read the mail. If you block this by enabling "check public keys" on the server, the admin could just turn off this option.
In general, it is a tough problem to protect data on a computer system from the prying eyes of admin people who are entrusted to run the system.
