Purchasing Exchange User Licensing and Windows Licensing
Posted on 2007-12-04
My company is evaluating giving every single employee an e-mail account which we currently do not do and are not licensed for. To do this, I will need to buy a lot of new licensing and that is where I am getting confused.
I am going to have about 90 "email only" users, buying Exchange Licenses is a no-brainer, what I do not know is what other licenses we need to purchase with respect to Windows/Active Directory. Currently we do not even provide these employess their own userID and password to the network, they use shared computers in remote sites where that computer logs in with a username/password specific for the site. We will continue this practice. The intention with the new accounts is to grant access only through Outlook Web Access, no POP3, no IMAP, no mobile sync, etc.
What licensing do I need to get? Do I need to buy a Windows user license for every person that I'm going to buy an exchange license for?
I am using user CALs.
