Exchange 2010 - Determine last item accessed?

I'm currently using the following scriptlet to  determine what the oldest item received in each user's mailbox is:
$Mailboxes | foreach {$alias = $_.Alias;$rtd = $_.RecipientTypeDetails; Get-MailboxFolderStatistics $_.identity -FolderScope 'Inbox' -IncludeOldestAndNewestItems | select @{n="Alias";e={$alias}},@{n="RecipientTypeDetails";e={$rtd}},FolderPath,ItemsInFolder,@{n="OldestItemReceivedDate";e={ (get-date $_.OldestItemReceivedDate).ToLocalTime() }} }

Open in new window


Is there any way to determine the oldest file someone has ACCESSED or READ within a certain time period?  For example, I want to determine when I last accessed a message that was over five years old.  

Basically, I'm in a non-quota'd Exchange environment, and i'm trying to make a case for quotas.  Users have huge mailboxes going back 10+ years, but I'm convinced that they don'
t actually access or read those older messages they've archived; I'd like to have numbers to back up this accusation :)

Please let me know if I need to clarify further.

Exchange doesn't store information on when the item was last accessed, only when it was last modified. Reading a previously read message will not touch the modified date.
