I think

Select m.NAME, m.date, sum(m1.Salary)
from MyTable m
LEFT OUTER JOIN MyTable m1 ON m1.date <= m.date
GROUP BY m.name, m.date

sorry, forgot a join on id.  Are the id's in your example correct, or maybe the join is supposed to be on name, not id.

Select m.NAME, m.date, sum(m1.Salary)
from MyTable m
LEFT OUTER JOIN MyTable m1 ON m1.date <= m.date AND m.id = m1.id
GROUP BY m.name, m.date

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

For each date that appears in the Salaries table?

BTW, avoid using reserved words like "date" are column names.
Select Name, SDate, Sum(case S.Date <= D.Date then Salary else 0 end)
FROM Salaries S CROSS JOIN Select distinct [date] as SDate from Salaries) D

Adwiseman's solution will miss out Helen's first record at least. Needs to be a cross product one the dates to ensure each date is represented for each Name.

Here with exactly your output

Select m.NAME, md.date, sum(ISNULL(m1.Salary, 0))
from (Select distinct name from MyTable) m
CROSS JOIN (Select distinct date from MyTable) md
LEFT OUTER JOIN MyTable m1 ON m1.date <= md.date AND m.name = m1.name
GROUP BY m.name, md.date
order by md.date, m.name

I'm selecting a list of names , and cross joining that with the distinct list of dates.  Goving me a list of all names, with all dates.  Then joining that in with the salart and grouping them.  The order is not the same, but the result set is.

create table MyTable([id] int, [name] varchar(50), [date] smalldatetime, salary int)
GO
insert into MyTable
Select 1, 'Bob', '2004-01-01', 10
insert into MyTable
Select 2, 'John', '2004-01-01', 10

Select 3, 'Helen', '2004-02-01', 20
insert into MyTable
Select 3, 'Helen', '2004-03-01', 50
GO
select * from MyTable
GO
Select m.NAME, md.date, sum(ISNULL(m1.Salary, 0))
from (Select distinct name from MyTable) m
CROSS JOIN (Select distinct date from MyTable) md
LEFT OUTER JOIN MyTable m1 ON m1.date <= md.date AND m.name = m1.name
GROUP BY m.name, md.date
order by md.date, m.name

I would sugest using a different source for the list of all distinct dates.  A function that returns a table given a start and end date, or create a table of all dates say between 01-01-1900 and 01-01-2200

monosodiumg's code, with typo correction works also.

Here, changed to use my test code.

Select Name, SDate, Sum(case WHEN S.Date <= D.SDate then Salary else 0 end)
FROM MyTable S
CROSS JOIN (Select distinct [date] as SDate from MyTable) D
GROUP BY Name, SDate
