Exchange Database Journaling Mailbox

    Question

  • We have 5 user databases all being journaled and sent to one Journaling mailbox.  That journaling mailbox lives on its own separate database.  We are about to restructure and I was wondering if there will be issues (causing some sort of a loop) if the journaling mailbox lives on a database that is being journaled?  Or if within Exchange, it has built in features to realize not to journal the messages it just sent to the journaling mailbox. Thanks!

    The recommendation is always to have a dedicated DB for journaling mostly because of the performance issues and log control. As for the logic, it wont journal itself :)
