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 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd547067.aspx

I'm sure it works.

Hi,

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

Here is a link. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd379509(v=ws.10).aspx

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.

Regards,
