I would switch to another product as you cannot update any expired subscriptions:
Try Microsoft Online Protection for Exchange or McAfee Security for Email Servers.

Not so sure these statements are correct.

According to the technet it will still be supported.

Just not sure how to subscriptions would be extended/licensing.  Our licensing reseller did not have any answers - they just said MS will conitnue to support.

It's a shame, because  FPE 2010 was much better performing than Symantec Mail security for Exchange in our Environment.

Researched further and found Microsoft documentation regarding the licensing key needed to extend support for FP for Exchange.
