Configure Journal Rule Properties

Exchange 2010
 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

A journal rule defines the scope of messages to journal, the journaled recipient, and the journaling mailbox to which journal reports are delivered. You can use either the EMC or the Shell to view or configure a journal rule.

importantImportant:
If you specify a distribution group as the journal recipient, messages sent to the distribution group, as well as messages sent and received by members of the distribution group, are journaled.

These procedures describe how to configure premium journaling. To use premium journaling, you must have the Exchange Enterprise Client Access License (CAL). For more information, see Understanding Journaling.

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

  • If you don't specify a journal recipient in the Journal messages for recipient field in the EMC or the Recipient parameter of the journal rule when modifying it from the Shell, journal reports are generated for all messages within the selected scope. If you decide to not specify a journal recipient, we recommend that you consider the increase in messaging traffic and the storage requirements for the mailbox database where the journaling mailbox is located.
  • There are important security and resource considerations when you configure the journaling mailbox that receives journal reports. For more information, see Protecting Journal Reports.

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. In the console tree, expand the appropriate forest and then navigate to Organization Configuration > Hub Transport.

2. In the result pane, click the Journal Rules tab and then select the journal rule you want to view or configure.

3. In the action pane, click Properties.

4. Use the General tab to view or configure the following journal rule properties.

  • Rule name   This field shows the name of the journal rule. You can change the journal rule name. The length of the name can't exceed 64 characters.
  • Status    This field displays rule status as enabled or disabled. You can't modify this field.
  • Modified   This field displays the timestamp when the rule was last modified or the rule creation time if the rule has never been modified. You can't modify this field.
  • Send Journal reports to e-mail address   This field shows the recipient that will receive the journal reports. To change the e-mail address that receives journal reports, click Browse. In the Select Recipient window, select the mailbox, contact, or distribution group to send journal reports to, and then click OK.
  • Scope   This field specifies whether the journal rule is applied to internal recipients and senders only, to external recipients and senders only, or to both. Select one of the following:
    • Global   Global rules apply to all messages that pass through a Hub Transport server.
    • Internal   Internal rules apply to messages sent and received by recipients in the Exchange organization.
    • External   External rules apply to messages sent or received by recipients outside the Exchange organization.
  • Journal messages for recipient   This field specifies the mailbox, contact, or distribution group that you want to journal. To target a specific recipient or distribution group, select the Journal messages for recipient check box and then click Browse. In the Select Recipient window, select the mailbox, contact, or distribution group that you want to journal, and then click OK.

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 changes the name of the journal rule JR-Sales to TraderVault. The following rule settings are also changed:

  • Recipient
  • JournalEmailAddress
  • Scope
Set-JournalRule -Identity TraderVault -Recipient traders@woodgrovebank.com -JournalEmailAddress tradervault@woodgrovebank.com -Scope Internal

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 retrieves the journal rule Brokerage Journal Rule, and pipes the output to the Format-List command to display rule properties in a list format:

Get-JournalRule "Brokerage Journal Rule" | Format-List
