Exchange 2003 syncronization with external mail server

I have an exchange 2003 mail server running in SBS 2003 server.  Inbound emails are sent to an externally hosted mail server.  Exchange somehow accesses the mailboxes on this server, presumably using some sort of POP connector, gets the new emails for each email recipient and copies them into the local mailbox on the exchange server.  My question is how is this done?  Is there a POP connector with the details of the mailboxes on the external mail server?  Thanks.

Yes. In Exchange 2003 on SBS there is a pop connector that is configured to go out and connect to the remote mail server, with each user's login / password, then that account is linked to a local active directory user, so that user can internally access his mail by connecting to the exchange server instead of to the pop3 external mail server.

Thanks LegendZM, that made it a lot clearer.  I was looking in Exchange System manager.
