    You wont be able to do it directly - use 2013 as an intermediate step: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...xchg.160).aspx

    Since it is SBS, you may want to consider either:
    decommissioning Exchange in the SBS domain, exporting mailboxes to PST and then into a fresh 2016 install
    or
    Blowing away the whole domain and creating a new one

    For me, I would prefer the latter as you will have 10 years of accumulated crap, not to mention a 4 step upgrade and with <75 users / PCs / mailboxes the work would not be too overwhelming
