I had a request from a user to restore a mailbox that had been deleted and purged. I restored the mailbox from a backup that was taken on 24Oct '11 but my question is - Will this mailbox have all emails that were  sent to it before 24th Oct and also those sent to it after?

It will contain all the emails that were in the mailbox when it was backed up, so it won't have any that were sent to it after Oct 24th.

If it doesn't leak oil it must be empty!!

If the mailbox was deleted, then it couldn't have received any email after it was deleted, and all mail from before it was deleted are gone too: the only source of mail for that mailbox is from the backup that you used for the restore. It will have only the emails that were in the mailbox on the day of the backup.
