Hello, I am new to backup exec and exchange.

My issue is that I have delete and purged a few mailboxes that I now need back. Everything is being backed up via backup exec 11.0

I haven't yet learned how to use backup exec, and I am new to exchange.
This is my first admin job and these mailboxes belong to my CEO. I'm trying not to panic, any help is very much appreciated.

Hi,
Assuming that you have a Backup, you will have to use Recovery Storage Group using that Backup.
Here are step by steps links to give you an idea on RSG along with usage in detail:::

Hope this helps
Thanks

If you did not do a brick level backup this is a huge task and one that you should probably contact BackupExec about. You can call them and verify if your organiztaion has a support contract.
If using Exchange 2003 you probably need to do a Recovery Storage Group method.

You may be able to try a simple thing. If you deleted the mailboxes from the users Outlook you can look in their deleted items folder if not there you can try to do a recover deleted items. If you did this from the server, you'll need to refer above.

Backup Exec 11 supports Granular restore feature..  IF Grt is enabled you should be able to restore individual mailboxes and even individual email from your information store backups .

Please refer to your admin guide for more information.

As it turns out I was able to use backup exec 11d to resore the mailboxes, it even has an option to re-create the user account if it has been deleted. Although I have to say, it seems like everything Symantect makes always almost (key word) works brilliantly. The Backup exec would copy most of the mailbox, then fail citing authentication. The design is impressive, but in reality it took Symantec support several hours to get the application to work, and even then it was 80%.  
Thanks everyone for your input all you answers were valuable.....except the one.
