Cheapest place seems to be GoDaddy and for Exchange 2003 - you only need a single name SSL certificate -
Exchange 2007 requires a Multi-Name SSL certificate (SAN / UCC), so if you plan to upgrade in the near future, only buy a 1 year single name cert for the time being, or buy a multi-name cert now and install that on your Exchange 2003 box, then re-key it for your 2007 box.
