We run exchange 2003 and I was wondering is there a log where you can see who is logging in to users email.
If so will it tell you where it is coming from and time/date?

Thanks

You can look in exchange administrator to see who the last login was.

Last Logged in user in ESM is close to useless. Do not rely on that.

You need to look at diagnostic in ESM under the server properties. Then set those accordingly. Access will be logged in the event viewer.
However it will quickly fill your event log as Outlook logs in to the mailbox a lot. You need to carefully tune the settings and possibly look at using a third party tool to manage the logs.

What do you mean?
Go into Exchange System manager go to first Storage group > mailbox store > Mailboxes
and see who logged on?

Set logging on in ESM and then look at logons in event log.  But like Simon says - you'll have tons.  We use TNT Event Log Manager to weed through and report and notify.

so that is under the Exchange server properties:

General Tab:
Enable Subject logging & display

That is message tracking.
Auditing is on the Diagnostics Logging tab.

However be very careful with it, if you set everything to maximum your event logs will fill very quickly.
I looked at a server a few weeks ago that was generating 250mb of logs every ten minutes with only 50 users.
