You need a CAL for each user mailbox.

Resource mailboxes (Room and Equipment) and Shared Mailboxes do not require a CAL.

So, it is basically a CAL for each user that accesses Exchange. If you have 400 users, then you need 400 CALs.

There are device CALs for Exchange but I never seen anyone use this model.

Lots of great FAQs on Exchange licensing can be found here.

Take a look at the links below regarding the Exchange licensing model.

Basically you will need a CAL for every user that has a mailbox. Enterprise CALS are not required but provide additional features.

Every HUMAN BEING that accesses a mailbox on the exchange server needs a mailbox.  Not user account.  Not mailbox.
