Hi,

i have enable journaling for one database in the exchange 2013 server. There are no journal rule in the compliance management. i set the journaling at the server database

example my domain is abc.com

When an incoming email has more than 1 recipients of my domain (eg user1@abc.com , user2@abc.com & user3@abc.com), the journal will have duplicate copies.

This only happen when the sender is from external email address

Can i know how to prevent duplicate of email? Thank you

You cannot. Exchange was not written that way - not since Exchange 5.5.

Hi Jjhelgeson,

you meant the exchange was designed to have duplicate email journaled when sent from external email address ?? Is that what you meant ?

A journal is user based. Therefore if there are three recipients you will get three copies because it is going to three users. Nothing you can do to stop that, as each message is processed separately.

I can't provide you with documentation, but Exchange is intelligent enough to know that the email is for multiple users and keep one copy. Emails coming from outside are handled separately. You need to keep a copy of each one in case they are different.
