Anyone who knows, if it's possible to deploy the MPS and run Hosted Exchange and Sharepoint on the Small Business Server 2003?

Well the short answer is that this isn't supported by Microsoft. The longer answer is that this won't scale one bit as you can't add additional Exchange servers as your environment/customers grow. Plus I don't think this scenario will be covered under
the SPLA for Hosted Exchange hosting.
You can go to a super small deployment of Exchange (1 AD, 1 Exch/MPS/SQL) to reduce your costs (btw, not good for a real service, but it could work), but there will be lots of headaches and poor performance.
Your best bet will be a consolidated deployment of HMC. Download it here:
