  • Your servers will continue to function.

    From: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232170.aspx

    "No loss of functionality will occur when the Trial Edition expires, so you can maintain lab, demo, training, and other non-production environments beyond 120 days without having to reinstall the Trial Edition of Exchange 2010."

    Basically, your server will function as a Standard Edition server.

  • If they are working with the trial today, they should continue working.

  • Hi,

    The mentioned article is about Exchange 2013, is there any TechNet article provides the same information about Exchange server 2010.

    Thanks
