Network Account Keeps Locking

Kevin used Ask the Experts™
Good Morning,

I am a domain admin on my network. For some reason my account keeps locking out and we are unable to pinpoint exactly how/where it is being locked out.

Are there any tools/scripts to identify what is locking out my account?

Our Domain Function Level is "Windows Server 2003" and both our domain controllers are "Windows 2008 R2 Datacenter".

Event viewer is not showing enough information to understand where the lockout is happening.

Appreciate any help with this.

Kind Regards,
Watch Question

Best, so far that I am aware of, auto locking account technique  is - mobile phone automatically logging to check e-mail, after changing password for the account.

Thanks Brain.

@Predrag Jovic - I initially thought it could be this with the mobile checking for email, but I have not changed my password recently and have about 2 more weeks to go until my password expires.
