This is using a single MS Exchange server 2010 for 30 mailboxes. Recently, the server seems to be slow down. I open the task manager, and found that almost 95% of the memory of 16 GB was used up. Altough CPU usage look okay, sometimes the server seems to be delay in response to the cursor. Just wondering how can I make the server response much better?

thanks,

Exchange is like SQL, it would use as much memory is available.

i would look at your i/o through performance monitor
as mentioned, exchange will use all the memory it has available to it, but there could be an i/o bottleneck causing slow performance
