How do I recover/restore a mailbox which was deleted in AD. A outside user has deleted all the user's account from this server 2003, and there was no backup for exchange. I can see the user accounts in First Storage Group-> Mailbox Store -> Mailbox. But they all have a red x for the user.

This is what I have done so far. I recreated the users slowly and trying to get the mail going again.
But my questions is is there way for me restore the old accounts to a new account.
When I right click on old user account and click on reconnect and try to choose a new account for that user, it gives me this error message:

"An object (user or other object) with the followng name cannot be found. " user". Check the selected object types and locations for accuracy and ensure that you have typed the object name correctly, or remove this object from the selection"

What options do I have? Someone please help me out!!!!
