    Use Symantec backup exec for only email backup so that you can recover each email as per request

    Search in youtube on how to install Backup exec for exchange. You can will get video with screenshots on how to install

    Since you already have a backup solution, you need to experince your scenario. I did test mine by recovering to the different machine without touching existing server and attaching to the network. With that way you will simulate real recover operation. I used a desktop machine for this purpose and it worked perfectly (was slow but worked).
