You need to perform a complete migration.  Similar to a normal domain migratation...with exchange:

Actually the ONLY migration path from SBS2000 to a Standard Server 2003 is to first Upgrade it to SBS2003 and then use the Transition Pack.

You can use a trial version of SBS2003 to do this.  

Information about the transition pack is here:  www.sbsurl.com/transition
