Mensagem:  1903 = "nineteen o three" but "nineteen HUNDRED AND three" Never "nineteen hundred o three" See tha pattern? It's MUCH more common to use "o" than "and" when you're talking about a long time ago. You hardly ever - IF EVER - hear stuff like "nineteen and three" or "Nineteen and Twenty-One" BUT with 2001-04 I'd say it's defintely more common to say "two thousand and one/two etc" but as MJD said, it's not uncommon or wrong to leave the "and" out in these cases e.g. "two thousand three" In the news you'll hear "fiscal year two thousand four"
