    Is this possible?

    We have an SBS2003 Server and another server in a DMZ which runs as a web

    Is it possible to install Exchange 2003 Standard on this and set it up as a
    front-end server for the SBS Box so that remote users can connect to it
    using OWA?

    I don't know that it's possible, but more than that, it's a bad idea. You'd
    have to open up so many ports between DMZ and LAN for the server to
    communicate with your Exchange box, you'd turn the DMZ into a screen door.
    Let your users access OWA from the SBS box - if you're worried about
    exposing it to the Internet at all, consider VPN.
