Licenses MS Outlook 2003 and SBS Server 2003

Hi! Am I wrong, but are there Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 client licenses included in SBS? Which means if I have 30 SBS client access licenses, do I also have licenses to install Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 on 30 connected-to-sbsserver-network client computers?

I'm about buying 12 MS Office Outlook 2003 licenses, I don't need that?

You need licenses for Outlook 2003 separate from the SBS CALs if you wish to run Outlook 2003.

Note: You should have licenses from your Office purchase, which should take care of Outlook 2003, unless you don't have any of the other Office programs installed.

Hi! Why are the Outlook 2003 included as an own CD in the SBS CD-package then? And also installed on the server as assignable to client computers? As standard?

Regarding the Office licenses. I need to have it mentioned.
We have volume shared keys (VLK) and find that's a LOT more cheap to by Office for the computers needed it. Then buying XX Outlook and XX Access clients instead of Office Pro Edition on all computers that only need those two applications - Really sending an reed thistle to Microsofts theory of Officepackages there >:-/.

I gotcha.  Those are different than normal licensing.  I still think you need licenses for the Outlook 2003 clients -- I think the Outlook is just included so you can deploy it to have some functionality with Exchange -- but I admit I could be wrong.  I would doubt Microsoft would grant carte blanche on a default client CAL for SBS to allow for 2003, but, again, I may be uninformed here.
