Exchange 2003 Licensing

Hi,

Just a query about exchange licensing. Firstly do i need to buy extra licenses for the system generated mailboxes, such as system attendant etc?

Secondly how does the licensing work. Ie if i have 50 licenses and 50 mailboxes, could i create more mailboxes, but the client wouldnt be able to access them, or would i simply not be able to create the mailbox?

many thanks

Paul

- no

If you have 1 Exchange License, you can create whatever mailboxes you need..the only limit is the amount of hardrive space that you have.

Presumably tho, with only one license, only one user would actually be able to access thier mailbox at any one time

There are TWO parts to Exchange licensing.  The server license and the CLIENT LICENSES.  You need 1 Exchange server license for each SERVER installation you use.  This is unrelated to mailboxes or hard drive space.

You need 1 CLIENT LICENSE (a.k.a. CAL) for each client that will access the server.  Usually this means each user but there are other possible scenarios.  So if you have 25 users will need 25 CALS.  Note that you often purchase some CALS (5 or 10) with your Exchange Server but this is something you should verify.

If you have any doubts, check with your Microsoft reseller for license advice.
