      I assume you mean using the built in Backuprunner program and not a 3rd party program with built-in brick-level backup.
      If so, then you need to create a recovery storage group and restore the entire mail server (Exchange) and then extract the individual mailbox from the recovery store using Exmerge or similar.
      Details can be found via

        Hello:
        This is my situation. I inherited maintenance on my clients SBS 2003 SYSTEM. Although I have some experience with computer system in general, I don't have any with SBS. On of the 20 users has an issue with their mail. They keep getting a message that the mailbox is corrupt. I have ran scanpst etc and doesn't seem to fix the problem. In reading, I see that the the exchange server stores the mailboxes for each user. I also see that there is a way to rebuild and error check the mail store, I was wondering, that since no one else has an issue, if there is a way to simply rebuild the exchange mailbox for a single user.

          Try exporting what you can of their mailbox to PST, then mail disable the user, deleting the mailbox. Re-enable (with an empty box) and re-import
