Fine tuning?
I would say you need to perform more monitoring than fine tuning.
I normally run on monthly basis EXBPA, check event viewer, logs (SMTP, antispam, agent,..) disk space, mailbox sizes, message queues. Occasionally I have to correct anti-spam filters.
Backup on daily basis.

Microsoft's MOF (Microsoft Operations Framework) is always a good place to go if you're looking for a single place to find what to do for monitoring and maintaining an OS or specific Microsoft applications/servers.

This is the defacto source for what should be done to a server/application and underlying operating system.

Of course, these documents are chest-high waders of knowledge and requirements, but many of the processes are highly automatable.

Good luck!
