As far as I remember there is no way to know , the max you can know is when the user was created

get-mailbox | fl name,whencreated

or when the email address was created in the link above

If they have not been moved from one storage group to another or one server to another, you can query the MAPI properties of the mailbox for the "PR_Creation_Time".  This value changes when the mailbox is moved, so it may not be a viable answer for you.  For info on how to do this, check out the section entitled "Exchange: Query Mailbox Creation Timestamp" (search for it) here:

(Note, this was a link within the article posted by dhruvarajp).

You are reading that article correctly  in that if you query the MAPI properties of the mailbox for 0x3FD60040 you will see the first time the user logged into the mailbox.  The issue will become trying to figure out the difference between creation time and use time.
