To enable POP3 on Exchange 2003, follow the procedure at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124934.aspx.

However, consider whether you actually need POP3 access. The proper methods by which to access an Exchange mailbox when away from the network is to use either Outlook Web Access or an Outlook client connected by RPC/HTTPS.
