    Tidy up exchange 2010 journaling mailbox

    Hi,

    I am setting up an exchange server. I have configured journaling, a copy of each email sent in the system goes to this mailbox. They just get dumped into the inbox.

    Does anyone know anything or have a system i can do to help tidy these up and manage these messages please?

    Thanks

    At my last school we would make a new jounaling mailbox at the start of the year and dismount the old one and store it away from the server on a USB drive kept in a safe.
    Keeps each year seperate and off of the live server but allows them to be revisited as required.

    Hello Chaps / chapets
    Here is my power shell script

    $dtoday = get-date -format "dd-MM-yyyy"
    New-Item Y:\$dtoday -type directory -Force
    export-Mailbox -Identity journal@domain.com -PSTFolderPath y:\$dtoday\$dtoday.pst -DeleteContent -confirm:$false

    All it does is create a folder with todays date then exports the journal mailbox into that folder with a created pst with the same date.
    Normally export-mailbox to pst leaves the items in place (strange when the command is export)
    So the –deletecontent –confirm:$false does the deletion
    Save the script as .ps1 and run it from a scheduled task. You can run the script as many times a day as you need, it will only create one folder and pst per day.
    The machine you schedule the task on will need the exchange powershell snapin added.
    Hope this helps
    Cheers

    Hello FN_GM
    Sorry not been on for a few days again.
    I am an exchange admin so i had to give myself full permissions on the journal mailbox first

    add-mailboxpermissions -identity journal@domain.com -user exchangeadmin -accessrights fullaccess

    This should do the trick

    Thanks

    You don't have the Exchange cmdlets loaded. Either run the script from the exchange management shell, or run a remote powershell session to the Exchange server.

    pretty sure the export-mailbox command was taken out exchange 2010 I was trying to export mailboxes last week. You have to use the following command New-MailboxExportRequest: Exchange 2010 Help

    I think you need to explicitly add the import export mailbox permission to the role before you can see the cmdlet. Take a look here Add the Mailbox Import Export Role to a Role Group: Exchange 2010 Help
