Our domain controller server had problem and we restore a recent image to rebuild it.  

After that, I am not able to mount our mailstore on exchange.  Anyone knows how I could fix that?

When you attempt to mount the mailstore and it fails, there should be an (or several) event in the event log detailing what went wrong.  Please post the details of the event.

Was that the only domain controller on the network at the time that it was restored?

an internal processing error has occured.  Try restarting the esm or the microsoft exchange information store service or both......
also see the following in event log:
the mapi call 'openmsgstore' failed with the following error:  the ms exchange server computer is not available.....
error 0xfffffde0 starting storage group ......
information store (5548) first storage group: attempted to attach database e:\exchsrvr......\priv1.edb but it is a database restored from a backup set on which hard recovery was not started or did not complete successfully.

When you restored the database - was the check box "This database can be overwritten by restore"

Also, please run the command Eseutil /mh "Path to the Database .edb file" and paste the output.

(I have tried to include pictures of both)
