How to Recover a permanent Deleted mailbox in Exchange 2007

Hi expert,

I need help to recover a mailbox which is permanently deleted from exchange 2007 and the retention period is over.

The account is still in AD but the mailbox is no longer there. I've searched around and it seems like I
have to restore the whole database just for that mailbox?

I use Tivoli to backup our system, but I don't know how to recover that.

I have 3 exchange 2007 SP1 servers: 1 Hub/Cas, 1 mailbox clustering (SCC) and 1 backup server (SCR)

Kindly help me on this.

Thanks,

If you you are out of the retension period you will need to restore your exchange mailbox from a pervious full backup either from Tape or Removable storage.
