SBS 2003 E-Mail for non-domain user

I'm trying to setup an e-mail account on SBS 2003 that is independent of the domain users.  Here is my scenario:
1. Internet users send message to address@domain.com
2. A PC on my network has software that will check the account via POP3
3. That software then reroutes the message to an alpha pager or SMS to a cell phone
I know I can setup an additional address for a user, but I'd prefer to not have the other PC downloading unneeded messages.  

Is there a way to do this with SBS or do I need to setup an external SMTP/POP server under a different domain name/IP address?

Thanks,
Casey

So, you use Exchange I assume.

You cannot setup mailboxes for non AD users, but you can setup just a dummy user, which also gets an exchange mailbox. This mailbox can be checked by a software, one software which will do what you want is GFI Faxmaker, which also supports addressing SMS or Pager devices, if you have an agreement with a corresponding gateway provider.

The systax is then simply like this
[FAX]name@domain.de
[SMS]name@domain.de
and so on.

This is a functionality, which is partly implemented into Exchange. GFI uses this functionality.
