I have a couple hundred Lotus Notes users and would like to be able to run a report that tells me when each user last read (any) their mail. Is there a way to do this easily?

    As long as there is only one server then it may be possible to read the last accessed info in the user access data.

    If there are multiple servers with users reading from all of them, then the data is not very useful.
    I prefer to use when the last time a mail was ever sent.

    This can be done by opeing in the sent view and pulling he dates from the first and last  emails.

    I hope this helps !

    I read my mail only from my local mail database...

    Meaning: the only way is to change the mail template, in order to maintain a log somewhere of opened mails. Why do you want to know??

    Yeah I used to do a combination of  reading the last accessed tool, then running another agent against log.nsf the database accesses to catch replication read/writes, and if all else failed, send an email with return read receipt.  If they ignored that, then would check the mail file and with HR
