I'm looking for a way to restore and mount my Exchange mailbox databases as they existed on a certain date.  I have snapshots from the date in mind, but from there I am unsure what would need to be done.  I need to get them online and searchable WITHOUT taking the "live" mailboxes offline.  Any ideas?

I'm running Exchange 2007 SP1.
