Mail Journaling and Mail Rules

Client which uses Exchange and Domino has mail come into Domino and if it's for the Exchange people forwards to them. No mail is stored in Domino.
Wanted to use Mail Journaling to capture these mails as they think some mails are getting lost in the forwarding.
No problem. I enabled journaling and a configuration document with various other parts and settings and set the mail rule for all documents to journal.
Simple right?
Journal works, but now mail no longer forwards to Exchange.
I found that even if i turn off the mail rules there appears to be a conflict between the existing domain wide configuration and the specific server one. When I rename the server config document to a fake name, mail flows again, but obviously journaling is not working.
Any ideas?
Server is on 8.5 about to go to 851 fp1.
