Does exchange offer a better way to view / search or do reporting on journaled email or do they make a product for this?  Thanks.

There are lots of third party tools that can work with the journaled mailbox data. Most of them pull the data out and store it in their own mailbox. GFI Mail Archiver is the first that comes to mind and I have used it before.



I am looking but I dont see one specifically for or with a dashboard for the journaling aspect.  I mean, it seems there is no "dashboard" to look at all emails or do reporting on a specific user; i.e. sort per user-  unless I am mistaken.

I am not aware of any dashboard facility in any of the products. I know GFI Mail Archiver can run queries for you as an administrator. However most of these products are designed to allow retrieval of the email messages, not to get statistics. If you want stats then you look at a different product that would most likely use Message Tracking logs.
