Exchange 2013 - how do you license it?
I'm looking at selling some email services and have been looking at Microsoft Exchange 2013 as a server option. I'm just a bit confused really.
The licensing that I have found on the Microsoft site suggests that you need a CAL for every user that connects to the server but I need more flexible licensing costs (perhaps based on the number of mailboxes or something similar). Is there another option that I haven't noticed?
I don't understand how so many companies can offer hosted exchange mailboxes for the prices they do when looking at the licensing costs for CALs on the Microsoft website.
If anyone has any links they would be very much appreciated .Windows, Mac OS X, Website, iPad and iPhone developer for hire. Competitive rates. PM for details.

If you want to offer any Microsoft products as a service you need to get an SPLA agreement first. The licenses within an SPLA agreement are priced out differently then retail/OEM licenses.
I suggest you contact a SPLA agreement provider and discuss what your trying to accomplish to get the real picture before doing anything.
Here is a SPLA agreement provider you can try if your in North America;
