Prior to using Outlook Anywhere in a SBS2011 environment, users would have to use a vpn connection to access outlook mail & it was easy to check who was connected via the Routing & Remote Access snap in. In the SBS2011, is there a way to determine which users are connected to Exchange via Outlook Anywhere since no vpn connection is being used to connect to mail?

Because OA uses Https, connections are, by definition, stateless. You could theoretically process IIS logs (any web logger can do this) to view login times, but there is no good way to view active connections. If you need that, DA or VPN access continue to be the best option.

Thank you. Which IIS log file would be the one to log these active connections?

It won't show active connections. Only authentication attempts.  Buried in the W3svc directories. I am in an airport (bored clearly) at the moment therefore do not have access to my reference machine.
