Hi Guys,

I am responsible for purchasing and planning our firm's new Exchange 2007 server next year.

It will be a hugh project to migrate from Exchange 2000 to 2007.

I saw in other people's post that Exchange 2007 can only take 4GB of RAM.
What happen if I put 16 GB RAM in the new server just for future planning, ( Hoping that a few years down the road, Microsoft will increase the RAM for Exchange usage.)
does Exchange just ignore the extra RAM?

We have 100 heavy users, average mailbox size is around 300Mb, can HP ML570 dual Xeon dual core processors do the job for the next 4 years?

We expect the new server will last us 4 years, how often do people replace their Exchange servers?

Also, I am planning to put 2TB storage within the same box, hot swap with a high-end smart array controller, is there a disk space limit that Exchange 2007 can handle?

Thanks

Exchange 2007 supports 32Gb RAM, its 2003 that only supports 4Gb.

2007 only runs on x64 hardware

Exchange 2003 supported 16TB of data per storage group so I'd imagine (becasue of the point above) this will be aove that, certainly with 2TB of storage you are far from reaching any limit.

It's interesting to note that the 32GB figure is currently Microsoft's most cost-efficient maximum memory configuration.  "Exchange 2007 can use 32GB of memory and more" according to current E2K7 documentation.
