Hi, I have an Exchange Server and I want to find out how many users are using their mailboxes through POP3. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only way I know to do this is by enabling POP3 logging and then reviewing the log file. Here is how to do that:

To enable protocol logging for POP3

1.To enable protocol logging for POP3, open the following file in Notepad: C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\PopImap\ Microsoft.Exchange.Pop3.exe.config.

Aa997690.note(en-us,EXCHG.80).gifNote:
The parameter names in the <add key=../> section are case sensitive.

2. Change the following line in the <appSettings> section from:
<b>
<addkey=”ProtocolLog” value=”false” /></b>

to:
<b> <addkey=”ProtocolLog” value=”true” /></b>

3.Save, and then close the Microsoft.Exchange.Pop3.exe.config file.
