If you need some more information:

Database Storage Limit: 16 TB per database   is the biggest difference.

Otherwise, Management of Exchange 2003 (stand alone or with SBS is pretty much the same) and Exchange 2007 is quite changed.
Microsoft introduced a new GUI interface for Exchange 2007 management, and its quite nice, but limited in what it can do.

Also, Microsoft introduced a new  "Command Prompt" interface, called "Powershell", which is required for Exchange 2007, and actually is quite integral to the management of the server.

Users, Mailboxes, and etc can all be added by scripts, which is nice if you know what you are doing...
Some things can't actually be done by the GUI, such as sharing access rights to a mailbox!  You must do this through Powershell.  Thus, management of Exchange 2003 is a lot easier if you've never ventured into Exchange management before.

Day and night.......

2007 has made vast performance enhancements due to the move to 64 technology...

there are features of 2003 that I like over 2007 however in genernal powershell and new features like transport rules etc..... allow for much more flexability and with the addition of LCR and CCR you can now have redundancey without requiring shared storage.
