Hi,

I guess that depends. It does provide additional layer of protection, in case something goes wrong with DB in which all mailboxes are.
Maybe if your disk drives are under a lot of stress, and you have some spare sata or such drives, then you can create new DB and put journaling mbx into it, but all in all I keep that mailbox in same DB as rest of mailboxes.
Just make sure you have a backup of it, and that is it.

Regards,

also keep in mind that, depending on the number of users and how much mail passes through, the transaction logs will accumulate fast so backups are important so you don't fill your log volume

Thanks guys. I know it would be a good idea to backup the database files for a limited period of time. Therefore is there a method to reset the journals after a certain period of time?

By backing them up say over a period of 3 months then reducing the journal mailboxes back to zero mb.  Like a reset.  Thanks
