backup exec 10d exchange restore

hello experts,

I am sure that I have done this before with no trouble but wanted to check something out after reading some worrying stuff online.  We have an Exchange agent and can drill down into single messages to restore (which is all we need to do in this case).  Can I just select these few, divert to a temporary mailbox and not effect anything in the productionh environment?  I am reading all sorts about recovery groups etc but am sure I just did the restore with no problems or any Exchange configuration at all last time!?

Thanks

Yes.

When you have a RSG created on the same exchange server,the restore job when run automatically detects the RSG and writes to it.

Please refer to the following document for information on a RSG restore

Yes you can do that.
You would want to use the RSG if you want to restore an entire mailbox store with the exchange still in production.

Thanks.

So I can safely restore items and not have to worry about overwriting as long as I am clear about what I want to recover and where I want to recover to?
