Hi Mark
Unfortunately the answer to your first question is no, as it stands at
the moment the only journaling feature of IM is client side and there is
no central logging of conversations with Exchange 2000 IM.
I don't know the answer to your second question but will look into it
for you.
FYI, I am not sure if you or the others are aware that IM is not going
to be part of Exchange 2003, Microsoft is working on a new product
codename "Greenwich" that is going to be a Real Time Communication
server, and one of the feature that I believe is going to be implemented
is journaling of IM conversations, below are a couple of links about
Greenwich if anyone is interested:

Is anyone out there using Instant messaging? We have been using it a
while now and there are a few things that I would like to know how to
Firstly I'd like to monitor for anyone abusing the tool and just having
a good old chin wag rather than for working purposes.  Any ideas?
Secondly I would like to add some "My Status" statements such as "Gone
for a Fag" "Out to dinner" "Busy with my bit on the side - Back in two
minutes to an hour" Does anyone know how to add these?
