We have about 45 users. We are running two DCs and Exchange 2000 is on one of 
the DCs.
The server is a small Pentium II 450 Mhz w/1Gbyte RAM. The server is also a 
Terminal Server (application mode, very lightly loaded).
This may not be the best situation, but we are also a small shop and we don't 
have a large hardware budget.
The server is running fine. Exchange is running just fine.

Subject: [exchangelist] Network Upsizing and Exchange 2000


By the end of this year my company is expanding to approx 30 users,
currently we are using exchange 2000 SPA on a Windows 2000 SPA Domain
Controller, Reading Microsoft's installation guides / opinion on
Exchange 2000 that you should not really use Exchange on a DC, unless
you are only a small number of users (less than 10) you should ideally
use a separate server for all your exchange needs.

But to do this I need to convince my MD!  Can anybody point me in the
right direction to advantages / disadvantages of using exchange server
on a DC with 30 user (or above 10) and using exchange on a separate box.

Any opinion or sites / books to read would be grateful
