DPM 2010 granular restore of Exchange 2010 mailbox data

Good morning!

This is a non-urgent problem ... which may not even be a problem... but something I'd like some experienced help in figuring-out.

I recently deployed my first-ever Exchange 2010 server - things are going very well.  I love it.  I also deployed my first-ever DPM 2010 server... I'm also loving this product.

Between Microsoft KB's, other support available elsewhere, and my own intuition (or lack thereof) I can't seem to figure out how to do a granular restore of mailbox data where I have a protection group created for the mailbox store.

I can do a restore all the way down to the individual mailbox level... but not WITHIN someone's mailbox.... like a particular message, folder, or other exchange data item.

Somewhere along the line I got the idea that this was a feature included in DPM 2010... it's not going to hurt me terribly if it isn't the case... but I want to make sure I'm not missing something.  Do I need ESM installed on the DPM server maybe to see inside the mailboxes.... kind-of like you have to have Hyper-V installed to see inside a VHD?  Or am I missing something else?  Or am I expecting a feature that never was?

I thought that when you did a DPM 2007/2010 restore, you could only do the object-level restores using the Exchange Recovery manager, essentially using a Recovery Database with object level merges into the production database.

Mailboxes are the most granular object you can restore from within DPM 2010, the rest you will have to manage using Exchange tools.

Here's a bit about the mailbox recovery process:

Thanks Shack-Daddy... I haven't actually attempted the single mailbox restore using DPM 2010 alone... The restore wizard would make you feel like you could do it...  but you are probably correct about that as well.

Thanks for the quick response and the answer I probably already knew but thought I would ask anyway!  ;)
