How to get a report for OWA users?

Hi Experts,

I have a farm of servers running Exchange 2003 SP2 and Exchange 2007 SP1. My team leader asked me to get some kind of report or stats of all users using OWA , POP3 and Imap4.

Is there any way to get this report into a csv file or spreadsheet for both scenarios (Exchange2003&2007)

A third party tool is not an option.

Can anyone point me on the right direction?

If this is SBS, you can get some reports from Windows

If not, you either need third party software for this, (like Quest), or you enable IIS logging and get the information you want from the logs.

IIS logging will help with the OWA report, but it will not help with POP or IMAP queries.  I am not aware of a built in utility to either Exchange 2003 or 2007 that will give you this info.  You could turn on network monitoring and trap all POP and IMAP requests, but that would be a pain to parse in a large environment.  I have always used 3rd party software for this type of request.

OWA is easy enough. The standard IIS logs will give you the raw information, then anything IIS log processing tool will process it.
POP3/IMAP - they both having logging capabilities.

However all three will generate a high number of logs and without a tool to process them you will be wading through a lot of log files.

Nothing built in for either version of Exchange to produce any kind of reports - that has been left to third parties.
