Hello Mohammed

As in your other question I think your snookered - you only hope is, if you are connecting to YOUR oun comapy's EMail server (Exchange for instance) Then They should be doing either a Brick Level, or information store backup to tape and the Techs should be able to restore the file to you.

If thats not possible your only option is to Mail the person who sent it to you and ask them to send it again - Sorry

I'm not recommending this as your first resort, only your absolute last and make a backup copy before venturing into these waters.  Since you're dealing with PST based items, there is a real dirty way to recover deleted items... provided there's been very little activity since they were deleted.  Check this out:
