Hello Lilee,

You can not restore an archived emails as those emails are not present in the Exchange database during the backups so they are not backed up.

When the Email archival is done it actually moves the email out of the database and saves to any secondary storage location. Only pointers to the emails are seen in the Mailbox. So actual email is not present in the Mailbox hence can not be backup up restored.

Backup Exec will only backup what is present on the Exchange server in the EDB (Exchange database) file.

Thanks,
