If your business requires you to do it, then you really don't have a choice.
However if it's something that your boss thinks "would be cool" then you
need to weigh your options.

Basically, when you turn on journaling in Exchange 5.5, it forces all emails
to go through the MTA, even the ones within the same server.  So, it'll
increase the load on your MTA.  If you will be doing it on the server where
all your mailboxes reside, you will essentially be keeping two copies of
every message sent or received, so you may want to make sure that your IS
has enough room to grow.  This stress can be eliminated if you
systematically archive/delete older stuff that is journaled.

Still the million dollar question is, what is your boss hoping to
accomplish?

Goodafternoon All,

I have just been asked by my boss to implement message journaling on our
Exchange 5.5/SP4 box.

Can anyone provide any insight on pro's/con's and/or pitfalls to doing this?

TIA

Ron
