I add contacts in Active Directory so that I can forward users email to external accounts. Does this use any CAL's either in AD or Exchange?

No! a contact is just an AD object it consumes no CALS either per seat or per server :)

Hi

No they don't. A contact is different from a user or computer in active directory or creating an exchange mailbox which have a recognised and unique security identifier. As you'll never log in with a contact (it's not a user account) you'll never use a CAL,

Hi,

Thanks for the points but I can't help thinking that either a split or acceptance of Pete's answer would have been fairer - he did beat me to it by a minute!
