Windows 2003 SBS Maintenance Tasks

Hello all,

    I have a client that is using Windows 2003 Small Business Server.  The system is running ok but on the server reports I see that the server is stressed to the limit.  I wanted to ask what tasks I should to to maintain this server.  I see they have a high memory usage.  Also, they have WSUS installed but don't even use it.  What tasks should be run to make sure Exchange is running smoothly and how can I reduce memory usage.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
