We are running exchange 2003. A user has deleted some good mail from her inbox. I had read where you can recover deleted emails from the exchange server. How do you do that?

Follow the instuctions of, r-j-smith for Outlook 2002 and later, but keep in mind, that you have to set a retention time within exchange server (keep deleted mails for xx days). You can set it within your information store properties. If this option is not set, the mails are deleted, whenever the online defrag in run on exchange server.

Also you can use Outlook Web Access (for older Outlook Versions), open OWA
