Q. Do I need a CAL for Outlook Web Access or Remote Web Workplace?
A. Regardless of how you connect to the Windows Small Business Server 2003-based server, you need either device CALs or user CALs. If you have chosen device CALs, then your use of Outlook Web Access or Remote Web Workplace will consume a CAL.
You need 10 CALS...  (7 internal users + 3 external users)

SBS will give you 5 CALS with SBS by default.  So you have to buy 3 more... however, I think a 5 pack is the smallest you can get...
