    Accepted Solution

    One of the easiest ways is to run Exchange Best Practices Analyzer:
    This will tell you the service pack your running and much more information about the status of Exchange.
    I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Even easier is to look in Exchange System Manager which is already installed on the server. Start, Programs, Microsoft Exchange, Exchange System Manager. Look in the 'Servers' container (or 'Administrative Groups, first administrative group, Servers) for your Exchange Server's name. Beside it you will see the Service Pack level listed.
