Troubleshooter: Archiving Distribution Group Traffic

What's the best way to archive all traffic sent to a distribution group?

Exchange 2000 Server includes a message-journaling feature that lets you archive to a specified database copies of messages sent or received by specified mailboxes. Unfortunately, you can't use the message-journaling feature to archive a mail-enabled distribution group because it isn't a mailbox. To archive traffic sent to a distribution group, you can create a mail-enabled public folder (with the appropriate permissions, of course), then add the public folder's address as a member of the distribution group.
