Any way to check is a user is connected to their mailbox (Exchange 2007)

I need to move some mailboxes around between some storage groups on Exchange 2007. Is there any way I can check to see if a user is connected to their mailbox before I move it and possibly disconnect them?

I think there is no problem if user is connected, since it connection does not lock user's mailbox to prevent from moving. If you move user's mailbox during hi/she is connected, connection will be lost temporarily, user will be automatically switched to outlook cached off-line mode, and that's it.
