Solution

To resolve this issue, make the Backup Exec logon account a System Logon Account at Network | Logon Accounts.

Figure:

 
Also check the following prerequisites for the Backup Exec account for GRT backups and restores for Exchange 2007
 
Configuring the Backup Exec Logon Account
1. Verify that the Backup Exec logon account mailbox that is used for the Exchange backup jobs is unhidden from the Global Address List.
2. Make sure that the logon account corresponds to a unique mailbox (this is discussed in the related document http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH24691)
3. Verify that the Backup Exec service account has Domain Administrator and Local Administrator rights on the Exchange Server.  Explicitly add the account to the local admin group on the Exchange server rather than relying on group membership to imply permission.
4. Verify that the Backup Exec service account has Organizational Admin or Server Admin role in the Exchange Management Console.
5. Verify that mail can be sent to and from the Backup Exec service account mailbox.
