Hi Folks! I am trying to find out if there are any available logs at all that can tell me if a user on my exchange 2010 server accessed email inside the network or outside the network remotely? I am guessing not, but I needed to find out for sure. Thanks!

Logging of internal connections from an Outlook client can be done from the Outlook client itself, but this normally is intended only for troubleshooting situations.  In Outlook 2010, the setting is in File/Options/Advanced/Other settings.

External connections using Outlook Anywhere, Outlook Web App or Exchange Activesync will show up in your IIS logs.  Other than that, I don't know of any way to log every time a user accesses his or her email.

yeah that is what I thought. And if the user had mail delivered on their smartphone, each time the phone syncs, that would show up in the IIS log as well, right?

Yes, assuming IIS logging is set up at the default level, then all of the communication between any external device and the website, including Activesync, OWA and Outlook Anywhere, will be logged.  You can check the logging settings from the IIS Manager by clicking on the site and then double-clicking the Logging item.
