    anyone know how the licensing works for the outlook that came with my sbs
    2003 premium? can i install that onto 5 workstations? or do they only allow
    it to be installed on the server? why would you install outlook on the
    server?

    Each Exchange CAL permits an Outlook install instance. So for each user or
    device SBS CAL you can install Outlook.

  4. the SBS installation procedure doesn't install Outlook on the server, it
    creates what is known as an 'Administrative Installation', a place where all
    the Outlook installation files are so that the install can be run
    conveniently on the network.

    Anyone covered by a CAL can install Outlook in order to access Exchange.
    This is fundamentally an Exchange Server CAL right which SBS gets as part of
    SBS CALs.

    Outlook should not be installed on an Exchange server, it should not be
    installed on the SBS.

  5. Hi James,

    You're prompted for the Outlook CD during the SBS setup. The Outlook
    installation files are copied to the \clientapps directory on the SBS
    server. When you join computers to the domain, the SBS wizards will install
    Outlook (among other things) onto the workstation, and configure it to
    connect to your exchange server.

    You can install as many copies of Outlook as you have SBS CALs, user and/or
    device. SBS comes with 5 CALs included, so yes - you can install onto 5
    workstations.
