I don't really understand this question.
Have you installed Outlook or some other POP client on a Windows 2008 server? It should work.

Are you attempting to send (SMTP) over TLS/SSL?

Your receiving(POP) password is incorrect according to that message.

Is the Windows 2008 server in the same domain as your Windows 2003 server? On the working machines do you have a cert locally installed for the pop/smtp server you are contacting?

Ping the smtp/Pop server from the working and non working machine and verify you get the same IP address returned
