Journal mailbox - need to query

I created the journal mailbox in exchange so I could demo a GFI product.  I now want to see how to view the journal in exchange without any 3rd party tool.  I tried to add the "journal" mailbox to my exchange, but it didnt like the mailbox name "journal".  I also tried to login as SA and create a new outlook profile, but again, didnt like the name journal.  I also logged in to windows as journal - same result.  I am just trying to view sent/received emails that have already been deleted by the user.  The journal has been on for a while now, its over 6gb in size.

Unhide the journal from the outlook addressbook;

Find the journaling account in AD, right click, Properties, exchange advanced, "Hide from exchange address lists"

I saw that it was hidden - but I don't want the "journal" to show up when people click the TO button to select a user - isn't that what that box is for?

Yes, that is what it is for, but Outlook uses that list to know what mailbox you are trying to open up.  You could unhide it, add it to outlook, and then hide it again if you wished...
