If you have the resources (cash) to spend on extra RAM, Exchange certainly
won't complain.  If you need to save, then don't get it.  Exchange will I am
sure be fine with 1GB as well.  With as small a Priv and you have, I really
don't think you will see any issues.  BUT, this is your call.  It's what you
get paid for.  So take everything that we are saying with a grain of salt,
and then make a decision.  :-)

No this is a win2K (no a/d) member server purely for Exchange. 5.5
enterprise edition sp4. Mailstore is just over 14 gig (private) and 3 gig
(public)
Do you reckon I should add the extra RAM?
Thanks
Dom.

I have a similarly configured machine supporting over 1000 Win2k users, runs
like a champ.  I have a mirror & two RAID5's though, and an extra gig of
RAM.
When you say "do it all" I hope you don't mean file/print serving, DNS,
DHCP, etc.
