Massive AD corruption on our Server 2008 machine has led us to the point where we are wiping it and re-installing Server 2008 Standard) and Exchange 2010 from scratch (they did and will reside on the same box).

I've managed to use the Windows Server backup Tool to create an Exchange backup - how do I use the backup to restore user mailboxes once all the software is re-installed.

You can't restore your Exchange unless you restore your AD.

Re-installing from scratch - will use same domain name, same account names...  I can't use the backup to restore mailboxes on fresh install?  I had understood that this would be possible....?

You could restore using portability.  Below is a link with the same scenario as you:

None of the posted solutions worked for us - ended up rebuilding / repairing edb file with assistance from Microsoft Technical Support and then restoring.
