Well, I guess that that is why calls to licensing specialists are free.
:-)

I interpret "using" in an active sense, not a passive sense.

I'd argue with your interpretation of this licensing spec. By defining a
user account, giving it an address (which becomes a personally
identifiable attribute related to the person in question), and
forwarding mail that goes to that address, I believe you are indeed
"using the server software."  

But you're right that they should speak with Microsoft to verify this.

No, I don't think so. Feel free to call a licensing specialist. In fact,
I would recommend A.M. Salim do so to verify this to their satisfaction.

Microsoft Licensing Product Use Rights, the official Microsoft document
that defines these items, says, and I quote:

Client Access License ("CAL") Requirements In addition to the license
for the Server Software, you must acquire an Exchange Server 2003 CAL or
Core CAL for each individual person ("User") or device that accesses or
uses the Server Software. Access or use of the Server Software means
access, whether directly or through a "multiplexing service" which is
defined as a software application or service accessing or using the
Server Software at the request of or on behalf of a User or device.

Quote complete.

The user who is being forwarded to neither accesses nor uses the Server
Software.

The proper way of looking at this is not:

they are not really using Exchange other than as a forwarding engine.

But:

they are using Exchange other than as a forwarding engine. 


Which means they need a CAL

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

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
church.

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
Mike
