Combine server roles?

We want to combines several server roles on 1 server. This is a virtual server at a hosting company.
Can we combine; SQL 2005, Exchange 2007 and  and terminal Server with OFFICE 2007.

We only have 6 clients so this is the reason we want to combine this.
Can somebody tell me if this can be configured this way? Where can we expect problems?

They can be combined this way - how responsive they would be is another matter, a lot depends of the specification and configuration of the server.
If you want an opinionated answer... one of the points and benefits of a virtualised solution is one app=one server.

Combining these is more trouble than it is worth.
That actually a very good point JimboEfx. One of the principle reasons for server virtualization is to have each application on a seperate server without the expense associated with multiple physical servers.
