Hello - I am having performance issues on my SBS2008 box, which includes Exch 2007.  I have bumped up the RAM 16GB and pagefile to 24GB with no success. Someone suggested that I turn OFF the spam filtering in Exch 2007 to reduce the load.  We have a 3rd party, external filtering service, so our email is only coming in from them, and should be pretty clean already. How do I turn OFF any SPAM/ filtering features of Exch 2007 on an SBS 2008 box?

There is a script in the Scripts folder in the Exchange installation.

http://enchiparambil.com/Installing_AntiSpam_Agents_On_Hub_Transport_Server.aspx explains the installation of spam agents. Run the uninstall agent script to take it off.

Be surprised if those agents will be the cause of the problem.
What is using all of the resources? If it is store.exe then that is by design, but it should give it back when something else wants to use the memory.

The memory is being consumed by the following processes:
1.05GB EdgeTransport.exe
676MB store.exe (I was thinking this would have used more.)
 2 -  32bit and a 64bit SQL server instance, which I'm not sure what they are for, except for apps like Symantec Backup Exec and/or SEP management console/ db, combined = 1GB total
Everything else is pretty small in mem usage after those hogs.

1gb of RAM on a 16gb system? That is peanuts.
If you put a zero on the end then I would still be not worried.

Exchange is designed to use as much RAM as it should do. On a 16gb RAM system, store.exe using 676mb is nothing. My home system with 4gb of RAM is using more than that. I would expect it be closer to 12 or 14gb.

If you are seeing performance issues it isn't a RAM problem.
