Exchange 2007: How to determine Outlook version for all users in mailstore

I am preparing for an Exchange 2007 to 2010 transition.  Some of the documentation that I have read mentions that Outlook 2003 clients have some specific issues connecting to the E2010 CAS so I want to get a report of which versions of Outlook are in use.

I have found several articles which suggest using ExMon or running a EMS script, however none of these seem to be able to generate one report which lists the client versions for all users within a mailstore.

The existing EMS script I am using is :

Get_LogonStatistics <MailboxName> | FL*client*

This is for a single mailbox and there are more than 120 in this mailstore.  I'm not an expert with EMS, can anyone provide me an EMS script that will list all users and then output this information to a file?

THANKS!

getting closer -

this one produces

ClientIPAddress : 192.168.1.176
ClientMode      : Cached
ClientName      : ALTN-9LLZWG1.altasens.com
ClientVersion   : 12.0.6423.1000


I need more of a comma separated list that shows username (mailbox), client, and client version.

unfortunately to keep it a one liner you would need to use Identity for the username/mailbox
