I’m upgrading from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and need to know what licenses I need,

It this following is correct,

Assuming 80 Users + Existing 2003 domain.

1x Exchange 2010 Standard Edition license
80x Exchange User Cals
1x Windows Server 2008 R2 Std x64 license

Now do I also need Windows 2008 User Cals on top of the Exchange Cals?
I’ll be keeping the 2003 domain so it will be a standalone 2008 Server.
