Capture All InBound and Outgoing Email in Exchange 2007 for Compliance

How do I capture all email that is received and sent within our organization using Exchange 2007?  I have created a Compliance account that I need to have all these emails stored.

You need to create a "journaling" rule and mailbox.  
 - First you create a mailbox that will capture all of the messages (e.g. "Company Journaling Mailbox")
 - You then create a journaling rule, by going to:
      Exchange Management Console -> Organization Configuration -> Hub Transport -> Journaling
 - Right-click in the "Journaling" field to create a new Journaling rule, and set the Scope to be "Global - All Messages", and have it point to the new mailbox you've created.

You can then use an archiving solution to pull the messages from that mailbox into an archive that you can quickly and easily search.  If you'd like, I can recommend an archiving solution.

Exchange Journalling should be the answer to your question:

How do I know that it is working?  Does it turn on automatically?
You can grant yourself "Full Control" over that mailbox, open it up, and look inside, o you can log into webmail as that user and see the journaling mailbox.
