Hopefully this is an easy question, but I am having trouble getting this answered anywhere else.

If I purchase MS Exchange 2010, do I have downgrade rights for Exc 2007?

Thanks

Providing you purchase through Open Licensing, yes.

"Downgrade rights in the Volume Licensing programs provide customers
with the right to downgrade to any prior version of the same product."

You can also call up Microsoft Licensing to verify

I personally recommend if you purchase Exchange 2010, that you install 2010 as opposed to 2007. It offers better management over certain features, operates with lower IO, you can backup text messages on Windows Mobiles (not Phone 7) and is a much better product.
