Enable diagnostic logging for the POP3svc service for authentications and connections. You will see these details in the event log.
 
Another option is to view pop connections under your pop SMTP virtual server.  Protocols\pop3\default pop3 virtual server \current sessions.
 
Here is a good atilce on diagnostic logging
http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Diagnostics-Logging.html

or

You can use the following 2 options to identify the POP3 users in an Exchange environment.

1.    Enable diagnostic logging for the POP3svc service for authentications and connections. You will see the connection details in the event log.

2.    Another option is to view pop connections under your pop SMTP virtual server which is located in Protocols ->  POP3 -> Default POP3 Virtual Server -> Current Sessions.

Also, a log file will be generated in the Exchange logging folder under POP3.

You where right

Here is how

Hmm you may have to enable protocol logging on the POP3 service. Not aware of any way to show you the current active connections (bear in mind that POP3 connections are relatively short duration anyway).

Not aware of a command you can use to enable the logging either, you have to head to the configuration file here:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\PopImap

If you open Microsoft.Exchange.Pop3.exe.config you should be able to find an entry like this:

            <add key="ProtocolLog" value="false" />

Change false to true, modify the path if you wish. Once done, restart the POP3 service.

With all that you should be able to use PowerShell to parse the log file and return the information you're after. I don't use POP3 here, so I can't tell you much about it, but if you get the log and need help post a sample and a description of what you want from it and we can take it from there.

You can configure some parameter including pop log with command Set-PopSettings but I don´t remember in Exch 2007 you have the option to set this settings you can use

get-help Set-PopSettings -detailed
