I'm looking for advice from someone that currently uses envelope journaling. We use one Exchange Server 2003. We have 8 stores roughly hosting 125 Mailboxes per store. We want to implement envelope journaling but I have a few questions about the possible hardware costs we need to budget for:
1. Will we need a separate server to host the journal mailbox or can we have the journal mailbox on its own Storage group/Store on our current exchange server? If a separate server is needed, can it be a VM?
2. How long do you keep the journal emails in that mailbox before you archive them using a third party software?
3. Do you have a separate server for the third party archiving software? We'll be using CommVault Exchange Compliance Archiver.

Hi,
See Journal Mailbox should be on a seperate Store and ideall Storage Group.
Well Well,  since you are planning to use a third party Software then why take the pain of creating another store. The archive software will take care of moving mails from the Mailbox and archive, I mean oyou will need to configure CommVault...it is a good product
use another Server for the same
Thanks
