Is it possible to setup Exchange 2003 to pull email via IMAP or POP from another email server? We have an Exchange server in the office but don't want to use the server in the office as the main mail server for our domain.

Not natively. You would need to use a connector to do that. And most POP3 connectors have some flaws, specifically in the use of BCC.
Any reason you don't want to use Exchange as the main server for email? That is how it is designed to work. Whatever reason you have for using another server or your ISP I can come up with a counter argument.
