Our organization is running Microsoft Exchange 2007 SP1.  We are needing to copy and/or extract the original messages from the Journal Reports (which of course uses Envelope journaling).  The original messages are sent to the Journal mailbox as attachments to the Journal Reports.  This extraction needs to preserve the message(s) in their original format.

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

First you strip the attachments
(1) using a very inexpensive and free-for-30-days tool 'Outlook Attachment Sniffer' from: http://www.rsbr.de/Software/OASniffer/index_eng.htm
OR
(2) following instructions of Experts-Exchange posting 03/30/09 09:12 PM, ID: 24279869.
Then, just drag-and-drop the attachments (emails in msg format) which got saved to a hard-disk folder, to any Outlook folder you have created.
Let me know if something is not clear.

Discovered that our e-mail compliance solution reads the journal format e-mails just fine.  This is no longer an issue.  Thanks for the help.

The solution offered would work (we use it all the time) -- and should be part of KnowledgeBase for those who don't have "e-mail compliance" software you refer to.
