Thanks Housammuhanna. Since I was just using the default SMTP that comes with IIS, I was hoping to find another similar solution for sending outbound mail. Is there another (cheaper) way to accomplish this without installing Exchange Server? I'm assuming there's nothing that comes packaged with IIS for doing lightweight tasks?
Thanks again.

Yes there is a Email Service that Come with WIndows Server 2003 Ent.
you can use the SMTP Service that come with IIS and the Email Service that will offer a POP3 Access
Other wise you can search for a Free Software for Email access
