Exchange Servers Admin >> ideal memory for Exchange 2007 (52 mailboxes) ?

I had read somewhere that one person thought anything less than 10gb
of memory was too little for Exchange 2007..

Well we have 6gb.. and the size of memory frequently grows beyond
8gb.. would bumping this up to 10gb eliminate the "oversizing" and
page swapping?

Thanks

Exchange Servers Admin >> ideal memory for Exchange 2007 (52 mailboxes) ? - Are you seeing any performance issues?
- For 52 users, you have plenty of RAM (enough to add a lot more users).
- Exchange will consume as much memory as you throw at it - unless you're
seeing performance issues it doesn't make sense to add more.

That's not true.
