I'd like to be able to track a history on a specific mailboxes of when it was last accessed and by whom. I know you can see this "at a glance" in System Manager but does anyone know how to retain a history of it? Any help would be great!

Hello,

From my understanding, you would like to retain a history of last accessed by field in ESM. This is a MAPI property and must be scripted out. There is no easy way to perform a constant recording of whos logged in. The closest is a script written by good friend and Exchange MVP Glen Scales who a great script to script this information out. However, since you’re wanting to record and retain a history, you would have to run these scripts periodically. Another method is to run Exchange Exmon utility which does a constant capture. There is also a limit (512KB I believe) in one capture before starting a new capture. This however, only logs IP addressed of computers that have accessed the mailbox. I hope this helps, if anything is unclear please ask.
