I have a domain in Windows SBS server 2003, and I want to setup one email alarm program with one account that always run in the same computer (Without any relation with the user that login in this computer)

How can I do it?

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.
