Veritas Backup Exec 10 restore a few emails to Exchange 2000 mailbox

I do brick level backup of all mailboxes with backup exec.  I want to restore a few emails in a users sent items folder to their current sent items folder.  I cataloged the tape and went into the backup that I wanted and found the users mailbox and sent folder and put a checkmark on about 5 emails that I need.  I went into the Microsoft Exchange under Settings and there are a few checkboxes that I am not sure about...

Exchange 2000

-No loss restore(do not delete existing transaction logs) (defaults to checkmark)
-Temporary location for log and patch files:(defaults to c:\temp)
-dismount database before restore(default is no checkmark)
-commit after restore completes(default is checkmark)
-mount database after restore(default is checkmark)

Are these the only settings that I need to do?
Also, can I do this restore during the day when users are working or does it have to be done when no one is in Outlook?

Any help is appreciated.  

Thanks

The above should work. I strongly advise you to restore the mails to a separate mailbox. I made one called "restore" which I use for that purpose. That way you don't overwrite anything you shouldn't overwrite. You can then forward or copy the mails to the user who needs them. If you do it that way the other settings above don't really matter, and the user can have outlook open (I'm not sure if outlook needs to be closed otherwise, but I don't think so, at least not if you are using the exchange agent).

Thanks rindi, I created a seperate mailbox.  I am just concerned about doing the restore during the day while everyone is working... Is it okay to go ahead and do the restores during the day.

Thanks

It depends on your system. If you are restoring over the LAN (the backup server is on another box than exchange is), And you aren't using a separate NIC and ip segment exclusively for backup, then that would slow down the lan for your users, depending on the size of the restore. If the backup and exchange server are the same box there should not be much impact.
