Outlook Web App (OWA) with Exchange server 2010 SP1

If we have the exchange server, do we still need to purchase Outlook Web App for each user.

If you underestimate the number of  licenses for OWA,  what will happend to the user without a license? Will he be able to access the Exchange Server through OWA later once one of the license is available.

    Accepted Solution

    The Exchange Server 2010 Standard CAL provides the rights to access e-mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks through either Outlook Web App (OWA) or through a mobile device via ActiveSync.

    I assume, client license needs to be with you for any audits. its not getting entered on the system.

    Good luck

    Assisted Solution

    Here is a guide from Microsoft.

    The CAL's (Client Access License) are not installed but are for audit purposes only.
    You will also need Exchange CAL's for each user connecting as well.

    As recommended, it is best to discuss MS licensing with a LAR or by contacting MS directly as no one here is qualified to truly answer this question.
