I hope this isn't a stupid question, but the fact is we have legacy system that may require an Exchange 2003 Server (our AD has not yet been extended for Exchange).  Does anyone know if an Exchange 2010 license provides downgrade rights, and if so, how would you go about getting a key?  Just through our rep?

I know I might have simply contacted our rep first with this question, but I'm not sure about the experience of others, but for us, it can be difficult to get linked up with our rep in a timely manner.
