Appendix B: Envelope Journaling on Exchange Server 2007
Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-07
Envelope journaling is an Exchange Server feature that lets a company send a copy of all messages to a journal address to be archived. These copies contain blind carbon copy (Bcc) recipients and expand the distribution list recipients for email messages. Envelope journaling is the only type of journaling that is available in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.
This topic provides the steps for configuring envelope journaling to work with the Exchange Hosted Services (EHS) Hosted Archive and Hosted Continuity services.
The following figure describes the envelope journaling process for EHS.
For more information about journaling, see the Microsoft TechNet article Overview of Journaling.
Understanding the Journaling Agent
The Journaling agent is a compliance-focused piece of software for use in organizations’ email message retention or archival strategy. You can configure the Journaling agent to journal email messages to or from departments or individuals inside and/or outside your Exchange Server 2007 organization. Exchange Server 2007 provides the following two journaling options to meet your organization's requirements:
Premium journaling: Provides journaling rules that you configure to match the specific needs of your organization. You can configure rules for a single mailbox recipient or for all the groups within your organization. You can also configure journaling for your entire organization at one time.
Note: To use premium journaling features, you must have the Exchange Server 2007 Enterprise Client Access License (CAL).
Standard journaling: Provides journaling of all messages that are sent to and from recipients and senders that are located in a specific mailbox database on a computer that is running the Mailbox server role. If you want to journal all messages to and from all recipients and senders, you must configure journaling in each mailbox database in your organization.
When you enable journaling on a mailbox store, journaling configuration information is saved in the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).
The following sections discuss the various attributes that you can configure to meet your company’s needs.
