We currently have exchange 2003 and outlook 2003 as a client. We are preparing to upgrade to Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010... which should be done first? Will it be easier on the client side to upgrade outlook first?

I would recommend upgrading to Outlook 2010 first. Once that upgrade patch is complete, upgrade your exchange server and outlook should autodiscover (if you put that DNS entry on your DNS Server) the new location of the server and allow for the enhanced features.

First upgrade the outlook clinet and then Exchange server, as there are some know issue with Exchange 2010 & outlook 2003 Compatibility.

To Avoid any issues, it is always recommanded to get the client to 2010 updated first and then exchange 2010
