    Exchange licensing query

    I have a question regarding licensing in Exchange 200 enterprise, but more with regards to the Outlook Web access part of it.

    I am about to create e-mail addresses for a load of external users (roughly 100 give or take), but just wanted to know before I do that, do users accessing their mailboxes via OWA need licenses? Or how indeed does it affect my licenses I do have in my network if at all?

    Any advise would be greatly received.

    Yep, you will need some kind of CAL. It maybe or may not be covered in your volume licencing.

    Some licencing guru will be better help.

    So does that mean the clients would all need their own CALS? Or would I need to purchase additional CALS on my side for them to be able to use this?

    How do you mean clients?

    Each exchange user will need a CAL.

    What agreement are you on. As i said on some agreements it may not need them, but i am not sure.

    What I mean by the clients is all the 100 odd new external users I would be adding. Would they need their own CAL or would it be down to me as the admin of the exchange server to buy the licenses?
    At the moment we have CAL's for the users in house, no more. And are on a Per-user license agreement.

    As long as they are paid for and you have proof that you have enough either way. As to who pays for them, thats something your organisation has to decide.

    But every one of those users would need a CAL right?

    Yes. a user logging into OWA constitutes a user CAL being needed for that user.

    I believe that you can actually get Exchange User CALs specifically for External Use, so that you could buy the required amount required for the users accessing from external. I also beleive the amount of CALs required isn't a concurrent use one, so you couldnt just get 80 of them and cite that only 80 of them wud ever connect at one time - its one CAL per AD username as i understand it.

    Havent got a chance at the moment to check my license sheet, but i can give u the specific MS product code if needed, although it'd probably be for Exch 2010, and again, without checking, I dont know whether they are backwards compatible (i'd assume Exch CALs might not be without checking that too).

    Cheers
