Is there a way within exchange 2010, Powershell or EMC to find out what version of outlook users are using to connect to exchange?

We have about 3000 employees and all are using outlook versions 2010 - 2016. We are trying to keep it all uniformed.

Hi,

 you will need to use script and log files to be able to see it.
 Before running this script, you must change ExecutionPolicy to Unsigned.
 From PowerShell run:  Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

Run script, and in the same folder where you have put it, you will get .csv file with report. How report looks like, see in attachment. You have per user Outlook version.

PS: You can then compare version numbers, with details on this page, to see what versions are they:

If you don't want to use Powershell, you can use the Exchange User Monitor tool:
