It's probably worth trying to restore the DB's to a recovery storage group - this should eliminate any permissions problems, etc. - then you can try recovering the individual mailbox (just in case there is a bad item in the mailbox) - http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/343448.htm

Thank you for your replay
i don't want to go recovery storage group now, it will be the latest choice for me. but i think the issue not in the Exchange server, as there are no logs at all in the exchange server regarding the restore, but when  i start to backup exchange storage groups, there are about new 20 event log generated in the Exchange event viewer

so i think the restore job didn't affect Exchange server at all, and the issue is in the Backup Exec

thank you again for any help

Does your service account have an active mailbox? You will want to have a service account that is mail enabled.
