We want to upgrade to Ex Serv 2003. There is a charge per user. Does that mean per mailbox? We have less than 50 clients logging on but over 150 mailboxes.

Exchange licensing is build up of the following:

- Exchange server license
  This is what you pay to run Exchange server on a server.
- Exchange Client Access License
  This is an additional fee for each user that connects to the server. basically this is the fee you pay for using outlook 2003 on a workstation.

So you pay for the number of users not the number of mailboxes.

So to log on and POP (and SMTP) mail with proper authentication, one would have to use one of the 50 user accounts to log on, but then access the appropriate mailbox? Can each mailbox be given unique username/password for SMTP AUTH? I am obviously a little vague in this area....

We have a radio email network whose gateway access incoming mail from 100+ users, each who have a mailbox, but each is redirected to the single mailbox which the radio net gateway accesses. Presumably then we only need one user account for this system to function. Or am I getting confused....
