There are no in place upgrade options for Exchange 2007.
Exchange 2003 is 32 bit
Exchange 2007 is 64 bit.

You will need a new machine to swing the data across. That is the only upgrade path available to you.

Simon.

What you should do is ask your question in a new question because it is unrelated to your original question.
