We are planning an email system implementation, most likely Exchange for a real estate office. They have about 10 employees, the rest are considered Agents (about 125 with potential for more). Each Agent has a cubicle in one of four physical locations, that they use for a few hours a day. Agents are not employees.
It seems since they work onsite, the Exchange External Connector is not a licensing option. Would you agree?
They do not need access to any server resources in our office, other than Exchange (email, contacts, calendars). There is a NAS that does very basic file sharing.
The cost to implement Exchange would require not only Exchange CALs, but also Std Server CALs as well. Am I correct in this thinking?
Any pointers or suggestions for implementing this without both CALs for every user, or if we need CALs, any particularly cost effective way to do so?
