Restore Deleted Mailbox from tape. User account and original mailbox were deleted

I deleted a users network account and associated mailbox from my exchange 5.5 server.  I am using Veritas BackupExec to backup the mail server daily.  I normally have no problem restoring  a mailbox or even an individual piece of mail from tape to a users account on the exchange server.

However, even though I have recreated the network account and email box using the same alpahbetical name, it *isn't* really the account associated with the mailbox on tape backup.  The restore attempts  end in failure with an    access denied ???name of user  error message in the log.

Is there ANY way to restore this mailbox from tape and have access to it?

We are running this on a Server2000 box with Exchange 5.5, we are not running active directory.

Thank you

the way to recover this deleted mailbox in E55 would be to make a recovery server and then restore the backup over there and the export the mailbox contents via Exmerge or Outlook client and then import the pst on the production server
