Great news: Microsoft is changing the Exchange 2007 licensing model so that you can use managed default folders (part of the “messaging records management” feature set) with the standard client access license (CAL). Originally, to use managed folders you had to pony up for the Enterprise CAL, which also includes Forefront, Exchange Hosted Filtering, unified messaging, and premium journaling. You also still need the Enterprise CAL if you want to use managed custom folders. Still, this is a welcome change. I still think the Exchange licensing model is complex and confusing to customers, but now it’s a bit better.
