Does anybody know what the cheapest route to an Exchange Server is, with buying the CAL's, software, and whatever else?  If it's cheaper to buy Exchange 2000, 2003, or Small Business 2003?.  My current boss wants me to buy, and setup Exchange so we can host our e-mail in house which i've done before.  I just haven't ever had to buy the software and the CAL's before.  We have a 2000 Server that is going to host it, unless it's cheaper to buy Small Business 2003 which comes with Exchange.  The company only has 20 employees so I think Small Business should work but the CAL's confuse me a little.  Do we have to purchase a CAL for every mailbox?  Any help would be great.  And like always he wants it done today.

Thanks in advance.
