What do you mean by "email alarm program"?  Do you mean a program running in the background that sends out an email?  If so, that's no problem at all to use.  Exchange will process any email message sent WITHOUT authentication as long as it comes from an internal machine.

So, usually those programs have a place to input the SMTP Server information, username and password.  (With a box to check if authentication is required).  You should just put your SBS's LOCAL FQDN for the SMTP server... ie, sbsserver.yourdomain.local

You can leave the username and password blank, or enter a username of your choice to identify who the message is from (ie, "SECURITY MONITOR").  Since there will be no email RECEIVED by this sender they don't need an Exchange Mailbox.
