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
