You probably have a license Server on your domain. This is used to control the number of licences you use versus the one you bought so it's easier to know if you need to buy more licences for your users. As far as I know, it doesn't block anything and I'm 100% sure that your VPN connections and Terminal Services wont be affected.

To solve that problem, click on Start/Programs/Administrative Tools/Licensing on the server that gives you the error. Then, you click on licence/New licences. You need to add the number of Exchange Server Licences you have. If you don't have enough licences, you need to buy some to be legit. If the number of licences entered there are more than the number of connections, you wont have this error again.

Advise users to have Outlook open their desktop or on the TS but not both to check if this is causing the problem as a licence is required for each client connection.
