  I had a server w/ SBS2011 which ended up crashing due to HD failure.  I only had 5 user accounts in total and 2 users were using Outlook. I have been doing Windows Server Backup daily. So I have all the data backed up from the previous server (I hope).

  I purchase new raid controller and new hard drives and created a new SBS2011 in the same server box. As to mailbox data is concerned, one user has a local copy of mailbox because she was running in "Cache" mode in Outlook. However the other user did not run Outlook in Cache mode.

 (1)  Is if it is possible to recover mailbox information from the backup for this 2nd user?
 (2) To do so, do I need to create this user account on SBS2011 first?
