We can use recovery storage group (RSG) to recover a mailbox, more details for your reference:

If you delete the user account in AD, we have to recover this account first, please refer to TechNet article:

You can still get back your accidentally deleted mailbox because deleted mailbox is retained as a disconnected mailbox according to the mailbox retention setting. You just need to reconnect mailbox to actual user account.

Check this Technet help

I'm sure it works.

you could use LDP to restore AD object, or in this case, users that got deleted with remove mailbox.

Here is a link.

PS: If I misunderstood and your users are not removed, only mailbox's then you can use some of the instructions from people above my post.
