We have a server running Exchange 5.5 in our office.  We currently have 5 users with mailboxes on our system.  We want to add another, but I'm not sure we have enough licenses for it.  How can I check to see how many licenses we have?  Do you need a license for every mailbox on the server?... or every Outlook that is connected to the server? I'm not sure how this licensing stuff works.


Thanks for the help.

Check the license manager on your server, under Administrative Tools. You need to have a client access license for each user that hits your Exchange Server.

I don't have a "License Manager" under administrative tools.  This is Windows NT 4 if that helps at all.

Pull up Exchange Server.  I believe it is listed under Help-About.  There is a per-seat and a per-mailbox mode.  There is plenty of help at http://www.ats.ucla.edu/software/agreements/Microsoft/MS_SCA.htm
