How much is too much memory for an Exchange 2000 server?  

-PowerEdge 2650; Dual 2.8GHz; 6GB RAM
-The server will run Windows 2000 Advanced Server with Exchange 2000
Enterprise Edition.
-Approximately 50 users
-Approximately 10GB of DB Storage

My thoughts are that this is a "waste" of memory in the machine.  Is there
any documentation that will support the notion that Exchange will not use
all of the memory, even with the /3GB switch?  How much is enough?
