Please be more specific.  Are the client PCs receiving an error message when they attempt to login?  Are they all part of the domain?  Can they ping the server?

OK, what is the problem that you're having with Exchange?  Are you able to setup their email accounts in Outlook or are they not able to do a send/receive?

Install Exchange SP2 if you have not already done so.  Next here is a Microsoft KB article regarding your problem.  It should help you out

exchange sp2 is installed, i am sure this has something to do with the server

installed licenses : 25
maximum usage : 10

why is the maxium only 10, when we have added 25 ?
 what do you think

bluetabCommented:
Maximum usage refers to the number of users that have signed on at any given time.  Basically you can have an addtional 15 users login.  SBS also has a 5 license reserve.  So you could have a maximum of 30 users login to SBS.  

Was the article able to help at all?

This has nothing to do with your licensing - there's something else at work here you need to resolve.  You'll do this faster if you stop trying to convince yourself it's licensing related.

I would suggest you review the links provided by bluetab and then also look up the event ID at www.eventid.net - a subscription to the site is cheap and it can be very useful to have to help resolve your various event log errors and warnings over time.
