im not sure if this is the same on SBS 03 but on Win Server 2000 i use Services, stop all the Microsoft Exchange items then start them up again if you arrange them by startup type they should all be next to Automatic!

You can usually just restart the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant Service, IME anyway.  It will usually take down your Exchange abilities for anywhere from 15 seconds to two minutes.  

It does not normally cause any problems, unless you have some problem with your services being unable to restart.
