Need to restore mails from transaction logs

Can we restore the mails that have been transacted after the backup, using the transaction logs? For e.g. If I take backups every 24 hours and the server crashes(Only the .edb file crashed and nothing else) after 12 hours, I restore the .edb file from the backup that was taken before 12 hours and if I need the mails that have been sent/received by the users after the backup,  can I use the transaction logs to restore them?

Hi,

Yes. That is the whole point to the transaction logs and one of the reasons why the transaction logs should be stored on a different hard disk to the Exchange database.
