Exchange 2010 Journaling Mailbox and logging

Hi, i have an Exchange 2010 server with 200 users.

For compliance i have a journaling mailbox in its own DB which keeps a copy of all incoming and outgoing email.

Currently the logs are increasing rapidly and i was wondering if i should have circular logging turned on.

Are there any issues in doing this?

thanks

I think timb551 have the mailbox which collect all emails by a transport rule. Maybe he makes backup the primary database only, otherwise there was a question about the primary database logs also.

Thanks All.

I was not initially running a full backup on the journaling db which is why the logs got out of hand.

I have put it to circular logging until i can add it to the weekly full backup.

thanks
