You archive e-mail messages to a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailbox from an external system or by using Exchange Server 2003 Standard Journaling. In these scenarios, e-mail messages that contain the same message ID are discarded, and only the oldest copy of each e-mail message remains in the mailbox.
This issue occurs because Exchange 2007 uses the Duplicate Detection function during the archiving of e-mail messages. In some cases, the original e-mail message may have been split into multiple copies, each with the same message ID. When Exchange 2007 receives these messages for archiving into a single mailbox, messages that have the same message ID as a previously received message are discarded.

After you install the update rollup, you must make changes to the registry on the server that is running Exchange 2007.
Two registry subkeys control the Duplication Detection function in Exchange 2007. The subkeys are ParametersPrivate and ParametersPublic.
Important Disabling duplicate detection on a Mailbox server enables any message to be delivered to a recipient with a duplicate message ID. We recommend that you make this change only on Mailbox servers that contain Journal mailboxes and no other mailboxes.
