No. A CAL in Exchange, or in Windows Server for that matter, is linked with a particular user / device which accesses the server, NOT the mailboxes / public folders / user accounts on the server. Thus, a single user / device can access an unlimited number of user accounts, mailboxes or public folders using their single CAL. It licenses a physical person / computer access to any resources on the server; it is not tracked on a per-mailbox basis.
