This is called brick level backups. You cannot do this with NT, NT does the entire information store. You will need third party backup softwar such as veritas netbackup. Brick level backups are not really recommended these days, is there a particular reason why you only want to backup certain mailboxes?

If you are performing regular InfoStore backups, you can bring back the data for any individual by restoring to the Recovery Storage Group.  You don't have to separately backup the mailbox.  Also, if you want to keep it available, you can write the mailbox to a PST file using ExMerge or by exporting it using Outlook.

If I understand you correctly, it appears that you're wanting to back up the mailboxes of people who have left the company.  Exmerge will easily pull the mailboxes out to a .pst file and then you can push that off to long-term storage on a file share, or tape backup if you choose.

If that's what you're looking for, check into Exmerge.
