If this is an Exchange server, Microsoft has several free tools that may help you. LoadSim is one--can't remember the names of the rest, but they should be fairly easy to find on the Microsoft web site. Be sure to download their manuals and read them very carefully. The load they generate can take down an Exchange server fairly easily.
