Upgrading to Exchange 2007 SP3
We recommend that you upgrade your servers that are running the Mailbox server role after you upgrade your servers that are running the server roles in the following list. Upgrade your computers in the following order:

Client Access servers
Unified Messaging servers
Hub Transport servers
Edge Transport servers
Mailbox servers
