copy outlook items back to Exchnage after restore

What is the best way to copy over items that are in outlook
but were lost in the exchange DB. between the current time
and the time of last last backup?

I DO NOT want exchange to delete emails that are never
from the time it was backed-up

I dont understand - transactions in exchange are written to transaction logs, which are written to the database when possible. When you do a full backup of exchange, the logs which have already been successfully committed are truncated, and those which have not been written are either committed then written, or rolled back. This means that any data which has been generated between last backup and now, is either in the database or, for the MOST recent, in the log files. If you have brought an exchange database back online, its status integrity must be OK, and it cannot have been in dirty shutdown.

I am not sure if this answers your question or I have misunderstoof what you were asking ?

I had to do a bare-metal recovery of SBS 2011.  The baremetal was a few days old so our users now have a few days of email which are not on the server.  I'd like to get those emaills and item which are stored in outlook (locally) back onto the server.

They are in cached mode and so stored in OST files ?

You are going to have to use something like this to export the ost to pst and merge back in. The osts created are encrypted with a key stored on your exchange server so if you do a bare metal restore, you will lose that key. I would expect when the users connect to the restored server for the first time, they will get a new OST file which has the data synced from Exchange.
