  • Hi

    If you look at the following and need it for compliance etc. then yes i would enable it:

    Journaling mailboxes contain very sensitive information. You must secure journaling mailboxes because they collect messages that are sent to and from recipients in your organization. These messages may be part of legal proceedings or may be subject to regulatory requirements. Various laws require that messages remain tamper-free before they're submitted to an investigatory authority. We recommend that you create policies that govern who can access the journaling mailboxes in your organization, limiting access to only those individuals who have a direct need to access them. Speak with your legal representatives to make sure that your journaling solution complies with all the laws and regulations that apply to your organization

    If you set a quota on the mailbox you should not have a problem however if you remove the quota then set it to accept mail from the Microsoft Exchange recipient.

    Journaling also contains sensitive information.

    I have this enabled in my environment without any issues.

  • Search performance is good, we don't have any issues, we perform a search on the journal mailbox and export them to the discover mailbox, the compliance team has access on this.

  • Hi,

    Have you ever access that 430GB mailbox through owa or outlook? Have given that mailbox access to compliance office or legal? How is the search performance?
