Message Journaling on Exchange 2003 to a mailbox on Exchange 2007

We are in the process of migrating over to Exchange 2003.  At the present time all of our users are on 2003 and all mail is coming in through 2003.

My boss wants to implement message jouranling, which I can do in either version, no problem.  My question is, when I am in 2003, could I select a mailbox that is on our 2007 server?  I'm aware of the bandwidth reprocussions.  I was curious as if this would work or not.

    Are you asking if you can turn on message journaling for one mailbox on an Exchange 2007 server but be pulling the messages from a mailbox on the Exchange 2003 server?

    I was able to select the mailbox on the exchange 2007 server as the destination of the message journaling that I turned on at the 2003 mailbox store.  Seems to be working.
