Can I install the Windows SBS POP3 connector into Exchange Server 2003?

SearchExchange.com expert Peter terSteeg discusses the Windows Small Business Server POP3 connector and whether it can be used in Exchange 2003.

Can I install the Windows Small Business Server (SBS) POP3 connector into Exchange 2003? I have both the Premium and Standard editions of Windows Small Business Server 2003.
The POP3 connector is an integrated component of SBS; it is not offered as a separate tool that can be used in any other version of Exchange Server. This search shows a number of third party tools that perform this task. There was once a community effort to remove the tools from SBS and offer them as a separate download, but I don't think it was ever finished.
