Hi,

Is there a way that i can find all users that connect to there office mails from OWA. Outlook web access to check mails.
If the only iway is from EMS logons then i need to tell you that we have veritas backup and when it backup the logon names change.Is there any other way to find.Is there any script if we can get the user names alone to a file that connect from OWA.

Regards
Sharath

You can only get this from your IIS logs.  Look for GET requests for the /Exchange URL (for OWA 2003) or /OWA (for OWA 2007).  You will see the username logged a few lines later after the user has successfully logged on.

Is it only OWA accesses details.
Is there logs created per day 1 file.
What should i look into to find the usernames
