Do you mean an incremental backup (as in the title), or an incremental restore (as in the full text)?
For an incremental backup: go to the DPM console, Protection tab, rightclick the Exchange data and choose Create recovery Point and choose the incremental full or express full option.
The "incremental full" will only use the Exchange-logs, whereas the "express full" will check the entire Exchange-store and backup the differences since the previous backup.

If you want to make an incremental restore, I'm afraid I don't fully get your question... In DPM the restore of Exchange-data leverages the restore-possibilties in exchange, using the recovery mailbox store and such. When you restored the data from DPM to the recovery mailbox store, you can choose to restore the specific mailbox using a merge of existing data and data in the backup. That way you get some kind of "incremental": only the deleted items will re-appear in the mailbox.

After contacting Microsoft, Microsoft confirmed that there is NO "incremental restore" features in DPM.  The entire store has to be restored to a recovery location then the mailbox or specific items can be recovered.
