Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If the user had specified to leave message on the server, you can find the emails in the user mailbox, if she didn’t maybe it is possible to restore the emails with <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/174197″>Microsoft Exmerge</a> but it depends of your exchange server settings about deleted items retention. The default is 14 day I think.

You will only be able to get what is in the dumpster after the POP has occurred (again, it depends on your settings about deleted item retention) and in Exchange 2007 you can see what is in the dumpster with the export-mailbox command.

If the user did not indicate the message should be left on the server, all the message older than “deleted item retention” setting surely are lost.

Regards.

    Mariodlq is correct, however it is also possible to retore the database to an earlier date and see if any of the mail was on it then. BUt if the POP occured before her mailbox was backed up then she is completely SOL.
