Confused about Exchange 2003 licensing

Confused about Exchange 2003 licensing

I have a Win 2003 server running Exchange 2003 and I have 15 users.  This was setup by my predecessor, and now I am responsible for it.  I can’t find out what he bought in the way of licensing, and he is not reachable to call.  My boss wants me to add 35 users ASAP.

1 – Where do I go to purchase the licenses?
2 - How much will they cost each, roughly?
3 – How long will they take to arrive?
4 - What would happen if I added them right away, before the licenses arrived in the mail?  Is there a grace period of 120 days when those accts will be allowed?  
5 – We are in the MS developers program, and get some amount of licenses as part of this.  Any idea how many or how this fits into the picture.

I think this server was originally an exchange 2000 server with the same 15 users, but I am not sure.

I found many links to web pages about MS licensing, but I am still confused.  Any help would be very much appreciated.


Thanks in advance,

 Relax... ok go ahead and add users to the exchange the licensing is can be found in the control panel under licensing  you can purchase lisensing from any online retailer delevery is however long shipping is and for exchange 2k3 the cost is usually 95-100 bucks each...
if you add the users right away it should be no issues you might get a warning about lisensing
saying that you need to add more but you should have no problems...

  Good Luck
