Question: Exchange tends to want to be as big as it can. If I have SBS2003 with several applications including Exchange and 5 users are there guidelines for tuning Exchange down to handle the 100 pieces of mail per day without taking over the entire machine?

Answer: I don't see a specific performance tuning guide in the SBS area. You might want to dig around in the Exchange area. I know there were some KB's that talk about limiting RAM consumption for caching and such.
