Journaling Issue in Exchange 2007

We have an Exchange 2007 SP3 environment that had journaling enabled. We have disabled the Journaling agent, and restarted Transport service as well as removing the journaling on the database level but the emails are still coming into the Journal mailbox. We also have deleted the Journal rule that was existing. Any ideas what could be causing it or how we can fix it? I’m tempted to just delete the mailbox but don’t want to unless we have to.

Restarting the server should resolve the issue. Are you able to restart the server at the moment?

Which server are you referring to in particular? We have a pretty extensive setup:

3 Mail Server Role Servers per site
1 Hub Transport per site
1 CAS Per Site

And there are 3 different sites.

It would be the hub server on your primary site. Although, now that I know the site layout, have you given the servers enough time to propagate?

I restarted the Transport Service on the Hubs but I have not restarted them. Is there any other services we need to restart?

I'm trying to avoid having to restart the servers, is there any other services I can restart?

Have you checked on all the hub servers if all the journaling rules has in fact been removed (just so we know if the propagation has completed)?

Try running the following command in the shell to disable per-mailbox database journaling:

The following command will disable per-mailbox database journaling on the Finance Mailbox Database.

The issue was that apparently the Journal rule existed on our Exchange 2010 environment (I thought it was shared rules with the 2007 servers) but it seems to have fixed it! THANK YOU!!
