Installing Windows 2003 SP2 with Exchange 2003

Are there any known issues with applying Windows Server 2003 pack2 on an Exchange 2003 /
SP2 email environment?

no , but it will tell you that but do not be afraid it will just work fine
There are some known issues with SP2 but they are only minor things.

It is a well-known issue that service packs may cause some services become inoperable, may cause troubles. Before applying, take a full backup, specify path for uninstallation during SP2 setup, so in case, you can remove it via Add/Remove programs.
The only thing I noticed while applying SP2 to and Exchange server was that the Exchange services were temporarily stopped while the SP was being installed. I did not expect this, I only expected to have to reboot when finished. So make sure no one is connected to Exchange while applying the upgrade. And also be ready to reboot when it's finished.
