SQL Server 2005 Trial Version

I have a resource who is going to do a brief period of development for me regarding SQL Server 2005 Database Mail.

Is there a way to get a trial version of the full SQL Server 2005 that has Database Mail capabilities?  SQL Server 2005 Express does not have that.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't download the Trial version of SQL Server 2005 as 2008 R2 is released out.
Kindly download the trial version of SQL Server 2008 R2 from here;



I suspect your link would point to the above one since I have checked it long back..
