We have a SBS Server 2008 and out user count has been increasing. Our PCs are not joined to the domain but the users do connect via outlook to exchange and also connect to shared folders.
Are there any implications it we have more than 75 users loaded on SBS Server 2008?

The 75 users limit isn't really a technical limitation in SBS 2008 as it doesn't really have the ability to track CALs. Do you recall ever having to install additional CALs you purchase with SBS 2008? :)

If you are currently exceeding the 75 users limit though, you are violating the licensing agreement. This means will most likely incur fines and get into some legal trouble should an auditor come knocking on your door tomorrow.

To comply with Microsoft's licensing terms, you will need to look at moving to a full blown Server 2012 R2 environment with a separate Exchange server, file server, DC, etc.

The days of an all-in-one solution such as SBS are over.
