Domino Server -Deleted users

I had this question after viewing Accidentally  deleted several users.

I have a problem, I have deleted the users out of Domino. Now I need to restore, I have restored their nsf file, but is there something I can do to restore the user back again or do I need to create a new user and somehow get them to access this .nsf file ?

I can only hope that you have a backup of your names.nsf file that contains the deleted users. Then you can just copy/paste the original Person documents back into the current names.nsf. Otherwise I wouldn't know how to restore the original documents.

If the users still have their valid ID files, they should be able to access their mail databases. Maybe you can re-create those users and set the security information in the newly created Person document to information contained in the existing ID files.

Thank you Sjef appreciate your help, my knowledge is rather limited as far as Domino goes. Yes I do fortunately have names.nsf backed up. So I just need to restore a previous names.nsf is that correct? I managed to restore names.nsf and now I can see one user but not the other. When I send an email to the user I can see ,I receive "User  not listed in Domino directory", do I need to do something to refresh?
