what exchange server version is my company using?

You have to use an Exchange server someone else administers.  You want to configure some other piece of software to talk to it, but all you have is your outlook web access page.  The other piece of software depends on the Exchange version.  Read on:

Pull up OWA.  In the relatively recent version I'm using, which does not list a year, the menu choices are Options->About, and then you look at the value for the "Version" field.  How to get to "About" may differ for you, but just click around a bit - OWA doesn't usually have a lot of menus, so it shouldn't be too hard to find.

Once you have your version string (mine was 14.1.438.0, but yours may differ), compare it to the following table to find the actual product version:

Product nameBuild numberDate
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 6.5.6944233 03
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 SP1 6.5.7226 5/25/2004
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 SP2 6.5.7638 10/19/2005
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 8.0.685.24 12/9/2006
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 8.0.685.25 12/9/2006
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP1 11/29/2007
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP2 8/24/2009
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP3 6/20/2010
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 14.0.639.21 11/9/2009
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 8/24/2010
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP2 12/4/2011
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP3 2/12/2013
 Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 15.0.516.32 10/11/2012

(table from Technet)

So the version I'm using is 2010 SP1 with some patches applied.

Good luck; with Exchange interoperability, you'll need it.
