Hi,
When you buy a Exchange 2007 server License, Microsoft also has Client Access License (CAL) for each user or device  accessing the server. There are 2 versions of CAL
You can say that if you have 200 users, you only have to pay for 200 users. Else MS can have CAL embedded with Exchange License, but then in that case they might say Exchan ge for 500 users, now that you have 200 only,  you might end up paying for 300 extra. Thats why Microsoft gives a flexible way of Licensing.
Some links to guide you:
Hope this helps
Thanks
