Trial version keeps asking for key

I downloaded the 60-day free trial and typed in the key that I got in the 
Getting Started email. It seems to have worked. But whenever I start up 
Powerpoint, I'm asked to enter the key again. It doesn't accept the key that 
was emailed to me (and yes, I used cut and paste). The strangest part is that 
the email says it's Office Professional 2007 and the window that asks for the 
key says it's the Home and Student version.

Are you sure that you downloaded the proper version.  There is a trial 
download for both H & S and Pro.   Which is actually installed?  Start Word, 
Click Office Orb, Word Options, Resources, About and read the line "Part of 
Microsoft Office XXX 2007 where XXX will be the Office version installed.

It turns out that I had somehow downloaded both and installed Home and 
Student. I uninstalled H&S and installed Professional Trial and now 
everything's OK. I'm being dragged into the Windows world from the Mac world 
where things are much easier to manage.

Yes, sometimes too many options can be undesirable.

Possible to keep log of addys blocked by Exchange block lists?
Such as Zen, etc. I was curious to know if there's a provision in Exchange whereby it can log the addresses of incoming mails (maybe even just the SMTP servers, if that's all it knows)? While on the one hand, something like Performance Monitor can tell you the *number* of blocked connections, it's a bit disconcerting to have no idea what blocked. Not using a connection filter and letting all email in and then filtering out with IMF at least lets you see what's not going to users.
