I recently sold a Windows Server 2003 CAL pack on Ebay that my husband had left-over when he lost his business. It was a sealed envelope. The person who bought the item sent me this message: "I've just contacted our MS rep and he confirmed that the packing should include a product key along with the license agreement.  There are some other inconsistencies.  The part no. on the license agreement itself is: X09-45626. The part no. on the front package is: X09-33386.  The part no. on the back of the package is: X09-11631.  I just want what is supposed to be in the packaging, according to Microsoft."

Can you tell me what actually comes in the envelope and if he has a valid argument?

I haven't ordered them that way but it should just be a couple of pieces of paper in the sealed envelope. One is the licensing agreement and the other a certificate with a fancy, difficult to counterfeit, stamp/sticker and printed on the document is a long key which you enter to activate the licenses. You are paying for that key. I can't imagine it's not there if the envelope was sealed.
