Envelope journaling differs from message-only journaling. Envelope journaling lets you archive transport envelope information. This includes information about the recipients who actually received the message, including blind carbon-copy recipients and recipients from distribution groups. There is now an update rollup available to enable envelope journaling in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.

This article contains instructions to install the update rollup and to automatically configure envelope journaling. You do not have to restart your computer when you install this update rollup, but several services are automatically restarted during the installation. Additionally, this article contains instructions to manually configure envelope journaling by setting the Exchange organization-wide heuristics property.


This article discusses an update rollup that you can install to enable the envelope journaling feature in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.


For some message archive purposes, you must record the message transport envelope data together with the message data that Exchange currently archives. You can record this additional transport envelope data by using the message journaling feature. The transport envelope data includes the actual recipient information that the transport system used to route and to deliver the message. This information includes the recipient who actually received the message. This differs from the message-only journaling behavior where the P2 message header only contains the message recipient data that the sender declared to the recipients. By default, when message-only journaling is enabled, Exchange 2000 may not reliably account for blind carbon-copy recipients, recipients from transport forwarding rules, or recipients from distribution group expansions.

Typical message-only journaling delivers a copy of a message that is flagged to be archived to a designated journal mailbox. However, envelope journaling delivers messages that are flagged to be archived by using an envelope message that contains a journal report together with the original message. The original message is delivered as an attachment. The body of the journal report contains the transport envelope data of the archived message.
