that would vastly depend on the volume of email you need to send.

side note, i would not recommend exchange for such tasks. a minimal linux or bsd and smtp daemon can run on less than 1gb of ram and close to zero cpu power for thousands of daily email.

the main issue is the disk speed rather than cpu or ram. that said, you must account for exchange so 8g would pribably be a bare minimum

smtp server for printers
assuming you mean the print agent, it requires neglectible resources compared to exchange itself, so yes : same-same
