How to do a mailbox restore in Microsoft exchange 2007

I am just wondering if one can do a single mailbox restore in Microsoft Exchange 2007?  That is restore specific user's mailbox while leaving every other mailbox up to date.

Lets say I need to restore a mailbox from last month.  But, I do not want to change any other user's mailbox.  Can we do that?

Please referece:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Q_27026868.html

We use Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.

It is working on a Windows Windows 2008 Server.

We use Symantec Backup Exec version 11d.  

I just want to know if a specific mailbox can be restored without restoring the entire Exchange database.

yes you can.  You can restore individual emails if you want as long as you are doing brick level backups

Ok, How do I know if I am doing 'Brick level backups'?

In the backup job setup click on Microsoft Exchange and put a check mark where it says backup individual mailboxes and messages.

I do not see the exact box in our version of Symantec Backup Exec.  But I do see something very similar(see screen shot).

It appears that that box is unchecked, so we do not have that option now.  Am I right?

Correct.  You should check that box if you want to be able to do brick level restores in the future.  For now I guess all you can do is go into the Deleted Items in Outlook then click on Tools > Recover Deleted Items and look for the missing emails or recover everything in there.

If the emails were hard deleted from the inbox or another folder then you can enable the Recover Deleted Items feature for all folders by doing this:
Start Registry Editor.
Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options
On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1
Close Registry Editor.
