Journal on exchange 2010 - where to open the Journal MBX?
This is a weird question, but I'll go ahead anyway...
I need to configure Journal archiving to 20 different users.
At the moment, those 20 users are on separate DB's with other mailboxes.
Since Journal in Exchange working based on DB, I understand I will have to open a new DB, enable journling on the new DB, and move the mailboxes I want to journal to this DB.
We also need to create a Journal user with mailbox to be the recipient of all the journal messages.
BUT - and this is the real question... can I open the Journal MBX on the same DB where all the mailboxes I want to journal from are located?
Once I define that specific user as the journal recipient - does the exchange know not to duplicate the messages that arrive to the Journal MBX?
That sounds weird, but in my logical thinking - if the Journal MBX is on a journal DB - all the items that will deliver to this mailbox will be in an infinite loop.
hope I explained myself, I'm sure the answer is simple, but unfortunately Microsoft not really giving much information, as journaling in not so popular lately...
