What crack pipe are you smoking out of?  Those specs are way beyond what's
necessary!

400 Mailboxes and 1 gig of Ram does not sound right.  Your primary problem
is hardware.

This is my minimum recommendation for your hardware requirements.

Dual Pentium III 550 +
Separate Raid Controller running in Raid 5 config.  (2 partitions logical) 2
Gig physical memory. 3 Gig Page File on second partition Run optimizer and
move the databases and log files to 2nd partition.

Subject: High Physical Memory Utilization


One of my colleagues recently reinstalled a 5.5 SP4 Exchange Server on NT4
SP5 (only Exchange was reinstalled) and have noticed that the Physical
Memory Utilization sits at around 99% (prior to the rebuild it was around
60%).  The server has about 400 mailboxes on it and has 1Gb of physical
memory and 1Gb page file.  It is the same spec as 4 other servers in the
site which all sit at around 60% utilization.  As it is a 24x7 service we
offer on our server, down time is very limited.  Is there any way I can
check the performance optimizer settings without stopping the store? Or are
there any other pointers that anyone can think of I can check?
