Is it possible to exclude messages with a .wav attachment from Exchange 2007 journaling?

Voicemail will soon be stored in the mailbox, and that would be entirely too much overhead. Our journal mailboxes are being shipped out to an external archiving provider. I've searched all over and haven't been able to find anything, any help would be appreciated.

Update: I just verified that all voicemail messages that I need to exclude come from a particular email address. This may be an easier task, but I still haven't found anything on it.

the easiest and cleanest method would be to put that email address/mailbox on a seperate or new mail store and not journal that mail store

Maybe I'm missing something here. Messages sent from cisco-vm@ourdomain.com will have a .wav file attached and be in the users' mailboxes. I need to only exclude those messages, not a particular mailbox entirely.

my mistake, was early in the morn and i mis-read as "to a particular email address" instead of "from a particular email address"

if using the UnifiedMessaging, it is quite easy, but sounds like there is CallManager in play?

other then that, not sure if there is an easy way to accomplish this one...
but i will have a muck around and let you know if come up with anything

hi, i have a theory but need to understand some more the setup with your archiving provider
quote: "Our journal mailboxes are being shipped out to an external archiving provider."
how are the messages getting out? eg: via a user or contact object etc

sorry to report after some extensive setup and testing, this does not seem possible with the options in the gui
mainly because it is a catch22 situation where "once it is journaled, you cannot un-journal or delete journaled messages before shipping"
possible option would be to stop it from being journaled in the first place, but from the description of your situation, it would not be possible to capture just these vmails correctly...

(my initial theory was changing the hub architecture priorities to journal agent first followed by transport agent. then using transport rules to "undo" the journaling, but this does not work)

I think you're correct. The journaling works like this: All mail is journaled somewhat evenly across 3 "user" mailboxes, exchjour1, exchjour2, and exchjour3. Our provider then established a secure POP3 connection to those mailboxes and archives the contents. We run cleanup on them regularly to keep the size down.

Thanks for all the testing and effort.

Is it possible to get a point refund on this since it's a limitation of software?

Thanks
