Exchanage 2010 Journaling

I had a strange request to determine if this is possible regarding journaling.  I typically journal at the database level or by creating a journal rule for an individual.  The question was posed is if we could journal based on distribution list.  With discussing with other engineers the idea was suggested that it could possibly be done via a transport rule.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sure you can. But if you specify a distribution group as the journal recipient, messages sent to the distribution group, as well as messages sent and received by members of the distribution group,  will be journaled.

Why internal scope?  Wouldn't this fail to capture any external mail.
Yes that is just an example. You can use "Global" if you prefer or "External".

Question a journaling rule is setup for an account that is for user@domain.com who has multiple smtp addresses.  It looks like its journal for all addresses for the mailbox regardless.  IS this assumption correct?
You are correct. Because the additional E-Mail addresses are not the primarysmtpaddress they will be delivered to that address regardless of which one is used.

Essentially it doesn't matter what address I use in the rule for the journaling rule.
