If you’ve been maintaining a journal in your on-premises Exchange environment in order to meet compliance and business needs, the challenge when you move to Office 365 is that there is no equivalent service in Office 365.
We can explain the options open to you for preserving and migrating your existing journals.
For example, you might decide to put the contents of a journal archive and/or on-prem Exchange journal mailbox into Office 365.
Alternatively, you can take advantage of Microsoft Azure for storing your legacy journals, and for hosting your journaling going forwards.
Journal migration challenges
Vital envelope metadata including any recipients that were BCC’d or part of a distribution list (DL) at the time the email was sent must be preserved to ensure accurate eDiscovery.
Your legal department will be keen to get a complete audit that proves every item has been successfully migrated and that chain-of-custody has been maintained.
If you’re migrating to Office 365, there’s no equivalent of a single-instanced journal mailbox that’s supported by Microsoft.
You may decide that you don’t want to ‘put all your eggs in one basket’ by migrating journals into Office 365.
