Need to determine last time a mailbox was accessed by a user as opposed to the admin account which accesses daily for backup

I need to figure our the last time - and export the data - each mailbox was actually accessed to view mail.

I'm familiar with viewing the logon times and access dates through the logon section for each server.  My problem is that even if a user hasn't logged in for the day the last access is shown to be by our admin level account from where the mailbox was backed up.  Therefore ALL accounts show activity within the last 24 hours.

Is ther anyway to get information on when a mailbox was "really" last accessed by an Outlook client?

We are running Exchange 5.5.

Hi,

>>My problem is that even if a user hasn't logged in for the day the last access is shown to be by our admin level account from where the mailbox was backed up<<

I'm afraid you answered the question yourself. No, it is not possible if you want to do a single mailbox back-up. If you choose to use a Online back-up of the store (not quite sure if this is possible within 5.5, it is in 2000) then, not all mailboxes need to be opened by the admin to be backed-up. You could try and audit when a user last logged into the domain, but then, you cannot be sure if they actually opened Outlook. And also, all OWA users don't log into the network (ar not logged anyhowes, i thougth) but the audit could be worth the shot..
