I don't want to buy it. I'm just using it for testing. We already bought exchange 2010.

I just need it for one more week to finish up testing

If you are using it for testing then you should suscribe to one of Microsofts support programs which provide you Keys for 12 months or somtime indefinitly to te4st and use the software.
Microsoft TechNet Subscription Standard

See: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/buy.aspx
   If your proffesion is in IT then it is a Tax write off as a business need if your company wont pay for it. They also have other subscriptions that give you even more like MSDN for System Debvelopment.
