i dont have any problem, just need to clarify on below queries.

1. Where and how can i see users those actually are using activesync. in my environment OMA is enabled for all users but i want a list of users those actually using it.

2. management wants to remove blackberry server and asking all 70 users to use Activesync for mails. being exchange admin what all aspect i should keep in mind before approve them to use activesync for better service.

My environment have 2 back end and 1 front running on exchage 2003 enterprise edition SP2.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi Pdixit1977,

Most of the Activesync information are store in IIS logs. You can use logpraser or other IIS monitoring tool for checking the logs.

For realtime, Try EXMON from MS. This will show you real time users accessing your server.

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Microsoft-Exchange-Server-User-Monitor.html

For moving users from BB to Active sync, you can install the Active Sync and configure it.

You next question, what things you need to keep in mind. There is an article, which shows comparision between both

http://www.exchangeserverinfo.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=70:blackberry-vs-activesync-the-war-is-on-&catid=31:general&Itemid=55

Now it is on you to decide. Which suits better for your env. From my end, both are good.
