Possibility of restoring brick-level backup (BackupExec) without original infostore?

Background info:
We have a server that contained among other things an exchange server. The raid on the server failed and seems to have corrupted the file system, so the Information store is corrupt, unreadable and so far unrepairable, at least with tools we have used, Eseutil, Office exchange recovery tool and Ontrack Powercontrols. None of them can really help in regard of "mounting" the information store.
Anyway... the system admin who first set up the backup job seems to not have understood the difference between Infostore backup and brick-level backups, where he has ONLY done a brick-level backyp on all the mailboxes.
Crashed server: Exchange 2003 SP2 Standard (patchlevel xxx) on Windows 2003 SP2
Exchange 2003 SP2 Standard (patchlevel xxx) on Windows 2003
BackupExec 9.1 + exchange agent option

New server:
Exchange 2003 SP2 Standard (patchlevel xxx) on Windows 2003 SP2
BackupExec 11d + exchange agent option

My question is, is there anyway to restore just the backed up mailboxes from the brick-level backups to a new server in anyway? A colleague and I have looked around quite a bit and have not been able to find any tool or decent documentation regarding this...

Each time we try restoring BackupExec 11d (we are using the for the restore process) it says is:

Have you tried creating a user account then restoring one of those mailboxes to that account? As far as I know you need an account to restore the backup to. If you can restore a mailbox to an existing exchange account, then you will have to first setup all the accounts and then restore the mailboxes to each account.

Yes we have done exactly that, on the new server we have tested restoring to a account, but the error message we received it the one stated above.

But we never lost the accounts they are still in the AD its that we seem not to be able to restore a brick-level exchange mail backup to a new infostore db.

You should be able to redirect the bricklevel to the new IS location.

But I'll try again and see if I forgot any switches in the restore job.

You may want to check the permissions of the user mailbox that you are trying to restore to. If you do not have the correct permissions then you will recieve that error.
