Exchange 2003 was 32 bit and the memory was limited to 4 GB - but Exchange 2007 and 2010 are 64 bit and to provide the best performance, will, in general, use ALL AVAILABLE MEMORY.

This is a normal behavior, exchange will always reserve all the memory it can to reduce disk operation and will release some of the memory to the system as needed

The below link has the steps for limiting memory usage, but it is not recommened by MS because Exchange 2010 is designed to use as much memory as it wants.  Though there may be a case for you to use it, that's for you to judge:
