I am going through task man on my exchange 2007 server, and have noticed that edgetransport.exe is using several hundred mb of memory.  

The weird thing is that I did not install the edge transport server on this box...nor am i using it in my organization.

Any thoughts as to why this is running?

Hi,

This may seem pretty strange I know I thought so but this is normal. This process runs on the Hub transport server also.

"EdgeTransport.exe and MSExchangeTransport.exe are the executable files that are used by the Microsoft Exchange Transport service. This service runs on every Hub Transport server or Edge Transport server"
