How to Create a Journal Recipient in Exchange 2007


How to Create a Journal Recipient in Exchange 2007




To create a Journal Recipient a copy of all mail going in and out of a mailbox database in Exchange 2007, you first need to create a destination mailbox to receive all the mail.  In addition, this mailbox should also belong to a separate mailbox database for the journal copy to be effective.  Once the above task has been accomplished, you can go to Server Configuration, select the mailbox database that you would like to journal, right-click it and click on Properties.
Within the General tab, select the Journal Recipient option.  Click on browse and look for the destination mailbox that was established in the previous step.  Click on “OK” after selecting it, and “OK” again at the Properties dialog.
All mail going to and from mailboxes in the selected mailbox database in Exchange 2007 will now be copied and forwarded to the recipient mailbox that has just been configured.
