I am using Windows Server backup to backup our exchange server.  Is there a way I can restore just one mailbox using the recovery feature of the windows server backup?  Do I need to purchase third party software?  Does Microsoft have any tools?

Thanks

No, you have to restore the whole database and then copy the data from that database just for the one mailbox: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee221172(v=EXCHG.80).aspx

You can restore just one mailbox with a third party tool like Symantec backup exec without restoring the whole database (I've used this tool a number of times)
