No. As a normal user you wouldn't have the capability even if it was possible. – Ramhound May 6 '13 at 16:04
Thank you for the prompt response...however, what do you mean I "wouldn't have the capability even if it was possible"? Could IT even monitor this kind of activity? – Samantha May 6 '13 at 16:15
I assumed since you were asking this question you were not the system administrator and thus wouldn't be able to setup this functionality. – Ramhound May 6 '13 at 18:46

If your system administrator configures the logging of access to IIS server and

will parse the records like

http://<ip address>/exchange/<user name> or

http://<ip address>/exchange/<user name>@<domane name>.<suffix>

in folders windir%\system32\Logfiles\W3SVC1 and then will send you a report, it will be something that you need.
