Well I just got off the phone with my Microsoft Licensing rep (a MS
employee, not a local distributer or partner) and after a detailed
discussion, he agrees with the above interpretation, i.e. all forwarded
users would definitely need CALs just like any other user, because the
email is indeed hitting the Exchange server and using it's resources.
