Have exchange 2007 as part of an SBS 2008 server
recently had deleted user from AD including mailbox, shared files etc.
current exchange server 2007 is running without issue
was able to restore the mailbox database.edb file from backup snapshot prior to user being deleted
looking for past support questions about restoring individual mailbox from the backup without disturbing current running exchange server, unable to find this specific answer.
need help is getting mailbox restored then importing into newly created user mailbox ( I think using .pst file would be the way, but need clarification on the actual mailbox restore process)

There are a few tools available that can extract an EDB file to show the mailboxes contained within. You can then navigate to the mailbox and export it as a PST, or even straight into the life mailbox database.

One of the tools that I have had experience with is Kernel Exchange Recovery. You can get a free trial here: https://www.kerneldatarecovery.com/exchange-server-recovery.html

Another tool I have used for the same purpose is Quest Recovery Manager for Exchange. I believe this has now been bought by Dell.

There are ways to mount the database to your Exchange server, but it has led to confusion amongst other IT staff in my experience. Microsoft Technet describes the method for this here, although it doesn't mention Exchange 2007:
