  • Journaling not working on Exchange 2003

    Hello, I puchased GFI Mail Archiver recently and installed it. It needs the Exchange 2003 journaling feature enabled, so I went ahead and configured that, along with envelope journaling using the EXEJCFG tool. However, journaling dosen't seem to be working. The journal mail-enabled account I created in AD is not picking up any mail. I am running a single Exchange 2003 server (SP2) on Windows 2003 Server R2Standard Edition and we have about 90 mailboxes on a single domain. I am also running a spam firewall called XWall. It runs on the Exchange server. It uses SMTP port 25 and Exchange is configured for port 24. I have a saperate server I am using for GFI Mail Archiver. Has anyone run into this scenario where journaling won't work ? Could it be XWall causing the problem. I have searched and googled into oblivion on this and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you restart the MX Exchange store service after setting the option?

      Hi Simon,
      Yes, I restarted the Information Store as part of my troubleshooting. Still had an empty journal mailbox.

        Have you got message tracking enabled? If not, enable it and see if that shows the messages being sent to the journaling mailbox. You do know that GFI MA removes the messages?

          Hi Sembee,
          Thank you !! I should have read the GFI manual a bit more thoroughly . I checked the postal.log and there was [email protected]*** hammering away. I didn't realize that GFI instantly removes the messages, which is really a nice feature. Also, I had to create an AD group that can access GFI, and once I did that and added myself, I can see all the EMails in GFI now.

          Thanks for the whack over the side of my head with the manual, we can close this thread and I can go fine tune GFI mail Archive !!! Appreciate the help greatly !!!
