We have users that have their accounts supposedly disabled once they leave the company, but checking their last logon in AD shows the date, days and weeks after they leave the company.

Does accessing your exchange email show as an AD logon?

Does access exchange email using smartphone show as AD logon?

thanks

Most probably Yes because exchange uses AD to authenticate the user .But I am doubting how do access the mail if the users account is disabled.

Any Ad authentication is sent to the DC that updates the event.
Based on your question "disabled" means password changed? Or supposedly means someone should have, but not clear when this step to actually disable the account was undertaken?

If you aggregate your DCs security log, you can query it to identify the source and type of AUTH requests received for this user.

I think the OP means the account is disabled but AD (where is this shown?) still shows logon dates occurring.

What attribute did you check? LastLogonTimeStamp or LastLogon.
