If Exchange 2003 works like 2000, then the ports are dynamic, and they change when the server is rebooted.  You need to open port 135 for sure, then ports 1024 to about 1800 or so just to be sure.  That should cover the range that it uses.

Hope That Helps,

Just to clarify, you do not want to open TCP or UDP port 135/RPC to the outside world for any reason.
