From microsoft website:

Upgrading to Full-Purchase Product
You can upgrade from the Exchange Server 2003 trial software to the released version of Exchange Server 2003 by performing an in-place upgrade. If you want to retain the settings, configurations, and data that you entered for your trial deployment, you must choose Reinstall rather than New install when prompted. While you can upgrade from the trial software version of Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition to the released version of Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, you cannot downgrade from the trial software version of Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition to the released version of Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition. As a workaround, you must uninstall the trial software version of Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition before installing the released version of Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition.
