Exchange 2003 without a Windows Domain?

Is it possible to run Exchange 2003 without a Windows network?  No domain contoller, no domain accounts, just Exchange server on a standalone Windows 2003 Server with local machine accounts?

The only mail server you can run without a domain is the built in one supplied with Windows 2003. This is an SMTP/POP3 combination and requires a client like Outlook Express. No web mail, no colaboration features  -just like what your ISP provides.
But if you have a Windows 2003 server then just turn it in to a domain controller. While not recommended you can install Exchange 2003 on a DC.
