  2. You can create an unlimited number of users/mailboxes in AD. However, you
    are only allowed legally to use those accounts depending on the type and
    amount of CALs that you have. If you have 20 Device CALs you can access as
    many accounts as you like with those 20 devices. If you have 20 User CALs
    you are only allowed to access the accounts pertaining to those 20 specific

    Isn't the number of concurrent authenticated connections a factor ? If the
    OWA clients are only connected for mail service he may be able to support
    several OWA users because of their limited connection duration ??

  4. SBS is not licensed per concurrent connections... if you have a device CAL
    it belongs to a specific device (same thing goes for user CALs). You cannot
    switch CALs back and forth between users/devices. Even if the user/device is
    only for OWA accesss (for a limited-time connection) you need to get CALs
    for each one accessing that way.
