  • True Exchange Last Logon Time?

    Issue:
    We have a sales team in the field that use OWA to access there mailboxes, most of the company is comprised of a sales reps, so the number of users in the field is quite large.
    The previous admins werent in the habit of removing old users who no longer worked here, so there are some user accounts and associated mailboxes that are no longer being used. Also we have some accounts and mailboxes that are for legitimate people, but we need to know if there actually using them.

    So with all that being said, I am looking for a way to find true last logon via an exchange mailbox as the sales reps in the field rarely if ever log onto the domain.
    I have put together some scripts to output last logon from the exchange server (we are running a 2003 native domain ) but the information isnt accurate as any touch of a mailbox object (checking a calendar, re-occuring meetings, backups etc) is recorded in the output of a last logon check (just like showed in Exchange System Manager last logon).

    Does anyone know how to grab, or any 3rd party application that will grab / identify a true last logon to an Exchange Mailbox?? Something that shows / identifies a successful login to a mailbox by a non system account??

    Any more info needed please let me know.

    Did you try Using Oldcmp. This is a Command line Active Directory query tool. Primarily used to find and cleanup old computer accounts that haven't been used. Can also be used to clean up user accounts when the proper filter is specified.

      Freakinup4u,
      Thanks for the idea, but unfortunately OldCmp can only be used against Active directory Objects and not Exchange objects. Appreciate the response

        They are the same thing.
        You cannot have an Exchange object without an AD object. Exchange doesn't record the last account to login, because it is the domain that is doing it.

        Your only option is to query the associated user account and see what time it was used. Someone accessing the account as a shared mailbox does not count in the domain.
