Setup personal folders on the local PC, move all the mail to them and change the default delivery to be into the personal folders.  Then you can create the new POP3 account, set it up to deliver to personal folders as well.  Remove the Exchange account when required.

On exchange 2003 use exmerge to create pst files for each user.Once that is done decommission your SBS server give relavant pst files  to the users.On outlook create a new pop3 profile and attach the PST files to the outlook.
