Hi Danny

That is not supported I'm afraid. You will need to completely uninstall Exchange and reinstall from scratch as downgrades from the trial Enterprise version to the Standard Edition are not supported. However, it is possible to get back the data from the databases for the new install although the procedure described in the second link is not exactly simple.;en-us;840015

Hope that helps?

A 180 day trial has completed for Windows & Exchange 2003 Enterprise
Edition. Standard Edition has been decided as the permanent version.
After Standard edition has been purchased, how would you recommend
tackling this (downgrade)?

Thank you,
