On a Microsoft Exchange 2003 OWA Server (Version 6.5 Build 7638.2 Service Pack 2) used as a Front End Server for External Webmail and Mobile devices, is there a way to run a report or find out what kind of mobile devices are accessing company email? As an example, this past week it was noticed that some employees were accessing webmail using their iPhones and it was only known because at the bottom of their emails it said that it was sent from their iPhone but I would like to monitor who is using what device to get into Webmail, any way to find out? Thank you.

It's not perfect but you can check user agent ids. That will identify the browser which will mostly Id the device.

I have no idea if owa tracks this normally, I just know it's one of the few things you can tell about a client from an http request perspective. Sorry.
