Hello,

I am have client that needs to determine if a user has connected a personal (non-company) controlled device to send and receive email.  Is there a way in Exchange 2010 to do this?  I need to not only know it is connected but determine when the last connection was.

On a related note, I need to track an email that was sent by the user to determine if it was sent from a personal or company issued device.  Is there a way to do that?

Hello,

You can get this by below command in powershell

Get-activesyncdeviceStatistics –Mailbox “userid" | Format-List DeviceID, DeviceType,DeviceModel, DeviceOS, FriendlyName,FirstSyncTime, LastSuccessSync,Deviceaccessstate

You can also use this script:

But first you need to modify the SMTP parameter to be able to receive the result on email:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | ForEach {
     $User = $_.DisplayName
    Get-MobileDeviceStatistics -Mailbox:$_.Identity |
    Select-Object @{label="User" ; expression={$User}},DeviceOS,lastsuccesssync   
 }| Export-csv C:\temp\report.csv -nti

$messageSubject = "ActiveSync Device Report"

$EASDevices.PrimarySMTPAddress = $EASUser.PrimarySMTPAddress.tostring()

$smtp = New-Object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
