Can I install the Windows SBS POP3 connector into Exchange Server 2003?

Can I install the Windows Small Business Server (SBS) POP3 connector into Exchange 2003? I have both the Premium and Standard editions of Windows Small Business Server 2003.

The POP3 connector is an integrated component of SBS; it is not offered as a separate tool that can be used in any other version of Exchange Server. This search shows a number of third party tools that perform this task. There was once a community effort to remove the tools from SBS and offer them as a separate download, but I don't think it was ever finished.
