Moving a server to SBS 2003.  The domain I will be using has some POP accounts for other companies.   I plan on getting some of these other companies setup on there own domains but I will need more time to do this.  For now, I just want to allow about 20 users to check mailboxes on the SBS server from outside network.

I know how to configure the pop service and the firewall to allow incoming traffic.  I plan on allowing a safe list of IP's only to check our POP3 port.  What my main concern is license limits.  Not everyone will be checking a mailbox at the same time, I presume this will work ok but wanted to see if anyone has a setup like this?

On the internal network I will have eight users connected to the AD doing file and printer sharing, connected to exchange via Outlook, etc.

I'll go with your theory that they will not all be connected at once - however, keep and eye on the connections... you may need to limit the time connected... espcially if you have file connections...
