What happens to incoming emails with dismounted infostore?

We had an Exchange 2007 server crash with a hard shutdown. The information store would not mount and we had to pull from backup due to many 1801 errors. Here are my questions:

The infostore was dismounted but the SMTP service was still running. Will external senders receive an NDR?

Where are those e-mails held while the information store was dismounted? It was dismounted for 9+ hours.

Thanks for all of your help!

Will external senders receive an NDR?  - Ideally not
Yes they are ideally heald for 24 hrs before a NDR is send but that depends on the Senders server as well

Okay, how about this?

The backup I restored from was on Friday. That was the last backup the customer had. Obviously there are missing e-mails from the weekend. I didn't want to replay the log files because they could be corrupt due to the 1801 errors and potential hardware problems.

Will messages still be sent from Exchange that were queued? The queue doesn't have any e-mails in it. I wasn't sure how sending e-mails out from Exchange was handled when the store was dismounted, then recovered from a previous date and time..
