My Exchange 2003 is running on Small Business Server 2003, which is also the domain controller.  I've inherited the network, and I'm trying to figure out why the Exchange server regularly runs out of Virtual Memory.

I'm monitoring with the SolarWinds Exchange Monitor tool, and it shows that I have around 4.88% Available Virtual Memory.

Is this normal / acceptible?  A few days ago, Exchange stopped sending & recieving external emails.  I rebooted the server, and then all was ok, but I'm wondering if it is normal for the virtual memory to be constantly max'd out.  I know that generally, one wouldn't put an Exchange server on the same piece of hardware as a DC, but from what I've read, it is done using SBS.  Can anyone give any comments, suggestions, or advice regarding this topic?
