Hi,

I have User Accounts with email and without email,Service accounts,User accounts just used for email viewing.
Now how can i find which are used and which are not. last login or last password reset is not getting me any where.
Any ideas on how to get this to a phase where i have just unused accounts and disabled them after validating

Regards
Sharath
