We are running SIMS on our G4/450 with 384 Megs of Ram.  We are running it
as our mailer for WebCatalog generated emails.  Works perfect.  On the other
hand, if it's just going to be an email server then this is over kill.  We
had SIMS running on a Power Computing Power Base 180 with 96 Megs of ram and
it was spewing more than 3 million messages a month.  That was about the max
it could do and it was more software based.  (Communigate Pro now running on
a Beige G3 233 w/ 198 Megs of Ram on OS X)

Nope - Everything went smoothly for us.  Just make sure all your basic
things are in place:
