How many users will one BES 5.0 server support? Sizing BES

I'm getting ready to stand up my BES 5.0 server and will be connecting 250 users. We won't be doing any kind of application distribution or anything like that from the BES, just straight up email delivery.

 

Can one server, with the right processing power and memory, handle that many users? is there any kind of sizing guide or tool?

Assuming you meet the hardware requirements, 250 users should be fine.

 

There is also a Perfomance Benchmarking Guide that you might want to take a look at.
