Great, thanks Kyle. I agree, from all the vague info out there, I am confident that you only require a CAL if there's a live person actually using the system. Appreciate the comment.
Exchange CALS for deleted mailboxes?
Hey folks, we're considering changing our deleted mailbox retention policy in on-premises Exchange 2016 to 6 months. We seem to have a significant increase in former employees returning after any given period of time.
Are CALs for user mailboxes required, or off the books (off the hook financially), when mailboxes are deleted/disabled? Don't want to run into licensing issues with this change.
If anyone knows the answer and can add confirmation/documentation of that, it would be very helpful.
Also, any other concerns you may know of in making this change?
As far as I know, for disable/deleted mailbox you don't need use CAL for them. Due to they don't need to access Exchange server.
Q&A don't support for Exchange licenses related issue so far, so I would suggest you double confirm with the pre-sales.
