Hello,

Is there any way to determine which users/mailboxes use active synch to check email on their mobile phones?

Thanks in advance.

The only relatively sure-fire way to know is to examine the IIS logs for the Default Website.

Activesync was in it's early days when 2003 was around and this sort of info wasn't introduced until Exchange 2007.

Thanks Alan -

Appreciated your response.  But when I request assistance I'm usually hoping for something a little more detailed that will at least get me moving in the appropriate direction.  For instance, for this same question, this post was a something more usable:

I found an blog as your reference:
 
 
 
Subject: Exchange 2003 - Active Sync reporting
 
http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2006/02/14/419562.aspx
 
 
 
From this article, you could see the followings:
 
 
 
The first script produces a ‘Hits by User’ Report which will show you which users are hitting your EAS servers.  This report provides many of the salient statistics that could help you better understand how your users are interacting with your EAS deployment.  It returns information by individual user such as, devices type used, number of Syncs, Emails Sent, Attachments downloaded, Meeting Responses, etc.
 
 
 
The second script produces is a ‘Hits by DeviceType’ Report.  This report gives you a breakdown of the DeviceTypes (SmartPhone, PocketPC, etc.) that are hitting your EAS Server.  This report can give you a better idea of what types of devices your users prefer, which can help you make more informed planning decisions in the future.  This script also can produce a very helpful chart, such as a 3D pie chart using Microsoft Office Web Components that can be used for reporting or presentations purposes to your management.
 
 
 
Note: Those scripts are samples only, not officially supported by Microsoft.
 
 
 
You could go into this blog for more detailed information. Besides, you could also use VBScript script to achieve your request:

Sorry, but not being a mind reader, how would I have known that without you letting me know?

If you had come back to me with a request for more guidance, I could have helped you further.
