Windows 2008 server licensing question

Hi, can someone explain user CAL and device CAL licensing? I need to purchase a few 2008 server licenses and need to figure out what is best. If I have a server suck as a SMTP server I would just need like a 5 user CAL license correct? Since eventhough 1000's of people use the SMTP server to relay messages there are only a few sys admins that actually login to the server.

Here is the thing you should be contacting a Microsoft Authorize licenser or MS themselves no on EE is qualified to answer questions about a company's licensing only the licenser can answer the licensing questions properly. If you were auditing my MS for licensing and you stated that you received licensing information from a Q&A website you wouldn't have a leg to stand on. You should always calls and speak with an Authorized person about licensing questions

The solution is to call MS or any other licensing party about licensing questions.
