As you have exchange 2003 then you will have licences fro outlook 2003 ... in this program you can specify rules when e-mail s come in... one of these rules is to run a script.

go to tools rules and alerts, create a new rule when the e-mail comes in does it always have the same subject? from the same person etc.
