1) Application Log - Use the event viewer on the Exchange server and analyze the Application Log.  If event id 1216 is reported when the Information Store comes online then you have Standard.  If 1217 is reported then you have enterprise.

2) System Manager - In Exchange System Manager, tree down to the “Servers” folder  and click the folder itself so your servers appear in the right pane.  This view should show 2 columns including an “Edition” column

Server Types & Versions

It has always been easy to indentify the service pack and build numbers of Exchange servers by examining the 'Servers' view in Exchange System Manager.
The Exchange System Manager supplied with Exchange 2003 now includes two more useful columns in this view:
Type - this column will show Basic, Front-end or Clustered.
Edition - this column will show Standard, Standard/Evaluation, Enterprise or Enterprise/Evaluation.
A sample screen shot is shown below. Here you'll see an Exchange 2003 server running the evaluation edition of Exchange 2003 Enterprise coexisting with an Exchange 5.5 server. It's worthwhile to note that Exchange 5.5 servers will always show as Standard even if they are running the Enterprise version of Exchange 5.5. The good news is that the columns are correctly filled in for Exchange 2000 servers.
