You can get a list of users who have setup their phones to your exchange server, but you would have to analyze the Web logs to see who was using it at any given time, which would be painful.
To see who has connected, type the following into the Exchange Management Shell:
Get-CASMailbox | where {$_.HasActiveSyncDevicePartnership} | select Name

Hello,

You can check through IIS Log Files,

If you are using IIS 6 (Windows 2003) then go to
Click on Start - Click on RUN - and type "logfiles"
Under that go to "W3SVC" and open the latest IIS Log Files.

If you are using IIS 7 (Windows 2008) then go to
C:\Inetpub\Logfiles\Logs - W3SVC files

Please refer to this article for how to read IIS Log files
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/bea506fd-38bc-4850-a4fb-e3a0379d321f.mspx?mfr=true

Also make sure logging is enabled on "Default Web Site" on "W3C Extended Format" only then you will
get the log files generated

Thanks

I dont really want to have to trawl through IIS logs if possible and the Get-CASMailbox | where {$_.HasActiveSyncDevicePartnership} | select Name just returns account names. I've seen some other similar cmdlets with other parameters which seems to output serial numbers of what has connected so that is a start although i'll need to modify them.   I'll post any new findings here.
Cheers

Sorry - dropped off my radar.
Here is a link to extract the relevant info from the logs, without too much effort on your part.

Thanks alanhardisty - that link is pretty decent.  I does what I need for now and when I have a little more time I'll look at feeding the EAS data through a database.
