Is there a formal standard defined for Envelope Journaling (or BCC journaling)?

I'm a software developer, and want to make sure I implement the journaling consumer correctly. My model for reference is Exchange 2010 and 2003, but I don't know how common those formats are

Exchange is common in certain use cases, such as medium to large businesses; however nowhere near common enough to use as a yardstick. – Mark Henderson Jun 22 '12 at 1:45
Thanks @MarkHenderson - You read my mind. That's exactly why I was hoping to find an industry standard or RFC – LamonteCristo Jun 22 '12 at 13:19

Microsoft has published information regarding their journaling format

However email journaling does not appear to be a formal standard
