Disable Per-Mailbox Database Journaling

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

Per-mailbox database journaling delivers a copy of all messages sent to and received by mailboxes on the specified mailbox database to the specified journaling mailbox. You can use the EMC or the Shell to disable per-mailbox database journaling for a mailbox database. However, to disable per-mailbox database journaling for all mailbox databases in your organization, you must use the Shell.

Looking for other management tasks related to journaling? Check out Managing Journaling.

CautionCaution:
Disabling message journaling on a mailbox database may result in your organization being out of compliance with any applicable messaging retention policies. When you disable message journaling on a mailbox database, journal receipts are no longer sent for messages sent or received by mailboxes on that mailbox database.

Note   Because a mailbox database may be part of a database availability group (DAG) and therefore reside on multiple Exchange 2010 servers, mailbox database properties are managed from the Organization Configuration node in the Exchange Management Console.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Journaling" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.

  1. Navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.

  2. In the result pane, click the Database Management tab, and then click the mailbox database for which you want to disable per-mailbox database journaling.

  3. In the action pane, click Properties.

  4. On the Maintenance tab, clear the Journal Recipient check box.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Journaling" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.

This example disables per-mailbox database journaling on the Sales Database mailbox database.

Set-MailboxDatabase "Sales Database" -JournalRecipient $Null

This example disables per-mailbox database journaling on all mailbox databases in the Exchange organization. The Get-MailboxDatabase cmdlet is used to retrieve all mailbox databases in the Exchange organization, and results from the cmdlet are piped to the Set-MailboxDatabase cmdlet.

Get-MailboxDatabase | Set-MailboxDatabase -JournalRecipient $Null

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-MailboxDatabase.
