Hello all.... thanks for the outpour of help.... 
Lacaille, and Joel... Lorie is right about the restoring process
mentioned,.... you have to have the server organisation name as the same
as the one you had earlier.... .. Infact there is a white paper on that
from microsoft. Its called the e2kdbrecovery I think you can search for
it on the internet.. if not please let me know qand I will mail yuou all
the whitepaper... now today was a very busy day.. and I had planned that
I would install an AD with the same name as the actuals and also the
same server name and the organisation name and all that... but forgot to
check that part at the time of the installation... will take the AD off
now and then rename the server and go with the reccomendatioons of
Lorie... I hope it works. infact microsoft had clearly outlined the
guidelines for a disaster recovery in the event of even the crash of the
active directory itself in this document.... I shall keep yyou all
informed of the progeress made on this.. 
Thanks a Zillion guys.... infact I am plannign to try a recovery on this
server without changi g the ad and the server name.. lets see what
happend otherwie I stiill have the option of changing it to what the
production is like... except for the hardware part.. I dont havce any
server with the same hardware specs.. thanks for the wishes guys and i
wil inform you of the outcome..

I just did this last week and it was quite a project.  If you are
setting up Exchange on a backup server you need to make sure that the
new server is off the network and it must be it's own DC in a new
forest.  Set the organization name the same as your production server.
Actually, I made everything the same just to be safe (Including the
server name).  I use Backup Exec and after many tries it finally works
the way I want it to.  After you restore the Information store, create a
user in AD and connect it to the mailbox that you want to restore.  I
installed Outlook on the backup server for single mailbox recovery.  Now
I can export all the mail from the mailbox to a PST and import it back
into my production server.  I hope this helps!

I have not done this, but we have just recently helped another Exchange
administrator on site implement Tivoli back up for our server.

From what I understand about restoring the IS, is that it would need to
put on a server that is identical to the existing server. I hope that
someone else who has more experience, can assist you with this issue.

Hello to all Exchange Guru's
I have to restore the mail of a single user from the information
store.... my presumption .. its not possible without restoring the
entire information store... and the backup has been performed on
ArcServe without the brock level option.
I want to restore the entire information store (If it comes to that ) on
a different machien that has entirely different hardware specs from the
actual machine. I have recreated a compleltely different active I need help as to how to proceed.. can I install exchange
on that machine with the new active directory (new domain contrller in a
physoically different network) and restore then install exchange and
then restore the information store on that machine...??
Please help
