Licensing requirements for Symantec Mail Security for Exchange


I've got a customer running SBS 2003 with 15 client systems.  They already have 16 Symantec AV licenses and they'd now like to run Mail Security as well.

The question is ... do they need one Mail Security license because it only runs on the one server ... or do they need 16 because it's processing emails for 16 systems.

My supplier is telling me 16 licences are needed for Mail Security ... but this seems wrong to me because it would make it very expensive ... and the desktops are already catching all the viruses anyway.

You have to purchase 16 more licenses as symantec mail security for exchange license is dependent on mailbox .So if you have 16 mailboxes on exchnage then you have to purchase license for 16 Mailbox.
