hello. I installed the trial version. I wanted to test how the auto-discovery. I add a device, select a template e-mail server (MS exchange). prtg adds standard sensors, and does not add any specific sensors for the mail server. Why?

Did you enter windows credentials in the device settings? The exchange sensors need a user specified, that it can use, to obtain the data.

Please go to the device and click "add sensor" in the context menu of the device(the menu pops up if you right-click the device). Then type "exchange" in the serach box and try to add the sensors manually. Does it work? If not, what errormessage do you get?
