Well, I'm not sure I agree with your interpretation of the licensing,
but that aside, you can do that with mail enabled contacts.

Subject: [exchangelist] forwarding emails and licensing

Hi all,

I have a client who has about 20 real mailboxes, and then they have
about 80 users who won't have email boxes, just forwards to an external
email like their personal AOL or a hotmail accounts.  This is for a

The only method I can see in Exchange requires me to install "real mail
enabled accounts" for each one and then set each one to forward, but
from a CAL (licensing) point of view, these 80 users would still have to
pay for a CAL license even thought they are not really using Exchange
other than as a forwarding engine.

Any ideas on how I can accomplish this without making having to set up
real mail enabled accounts in Exchange?

best regards
