Default Small Business 2007 Serial number?

I installed a trial version of this ages ago but havent' used it for a while.
My old email program is acting up so I want to activate SB 2007 and use
Outlook/Word etc.

I have tried 3 seperate serial numbers but all are invalid.

One is inside a DVD style case and two are on credit card type things.

Are they no good ie. only for some manufacturer OEM pre-install etc. Or am I
best migrating to a new hdd and downloading the trial to activate from
scratch?

I did end up the other day on an accounts page at MS and it was showing what
I thought were two activated copies but no dice.

If you installed it ages ago, chances are it's expired. If you aren't going
to fix your old email program and really want to run the trial, then I would
suggest trying it on another computer.

Ah, I don't want to run the trial I want to upgrade it to the full version
using the serial number(s) I have but they come back as invalid.

You have to uninstall the trial version first.
