Because you are on Exchange 2007, you should be able to set the Inbox of your Journaling mailbox to be a Managed folder.  You can then create a rule to delete messages older than XX number of days.  I would suggest reading this article and its sub-articles for more information:

HI DrUltima:

Can we create managed folder for particular user only or may be for a user group ?

I am not sure I understand your question.  Groups don't have mailboxes, only users do.
