Exchange 2010 - Journal only specific accounts not entire enterprise

I do not want to journal the entire enterprise but however I have it setup it is indeed sending every single email from every single account within the organization to the journal mail account.
I created a Journal Rule (Organizational Config-Hub Transport-Journal rule) for each user amial account (10 users) and I want to capture ALL of their incoming and outgoing mail.  I do not see where I have "enabled" journaling on the entire enterprise.  My journal rule is this:

Send journal reports to email address is:  journal@conteso.com
Scope is: Global (I want incoming and outgoing)
Journal messages for recipient:  jsmith@conteso.com (user i want to capture)

These 10 accounts are within the same Admin database.  I dont understand what setting is grabbing all 150 user accounts.  I thought I had this working at one point but my database is growing huge because of this.  Im sure its an easy fix Im just not seeing it.

I did verify that on each database (I have 4 of them for the organization) that the "Enable Journaling" is NOT checked on each one of the databases.

You need something like:

New-JournalRule -Name "Discovery Journal Recipients" -Recipient user1@contoso.com -JournalEmailAddress "Journal Mailbox" -Scope Global -Enabled $True

which journals the user1@contoso.com's mailbox.

I'm not sure but I doubt it. Don't shy away from the EMS or Powershell, it's your best friend in Exchange (and much more).

Take a look here for some primers:

I reviewed my 10 Journal Rules.  I had one rule that had nothing in the journal messages for recipients. I added the proper email and it is working properly.  No recipient meant it captured all.
