As soon as you open up Exchange Administrator program the eval version will say "This promo version will expire on (date)".

1. when it expires you will get an error stating that no one will be able to receive e-mail from it.

2. One way to check when a promotional copy of Exchange Server 5.0 is due to expire is to view an object attribute of the server properties.

WARNING: Using the raw mode of the Exchange Server Administrator program (admin /r) incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Microsoft Windows NT Server and/or Microsoft Exchange Server. Microsoft cannot guarantee thatproblems resulting from the incorrect use of raw mode can be solved. Use raw mode at your own risk.


Open the Exchange Administrator program in raw mode.


Select the Raw Properties on the server that you want to check.


Look for an object attribute called Promo-Expiration.


This attribute will show the date when the promotional copy is due to expire. The format is Universal Time.

If there is no Promo-Expiration attribute, the copy of Exchange Server is most likely not the evaluation version.

The Promo-Expiration attribute cannot be deleted or modified through the Exchange Administrator program.
