Possible to redeliver email from Exchange server?

Is there anyway to have Exchange 2k redeliver a message?  It's been delivered once, but the user's Outlook may have sent it to a junk mail folder and possibly deleted.  All the messages are stored on the server.  

I apologize if this is a oft repeated question, I can't find a way to phrase it properly so that the search engine comes up with relevant results.  Thanks all.

Once the message has gone through the system that is it.

How long ago was the message sent/received?
Do you have deleted item retention turned on? If so then you should be able to get it back.

The message was received yesterday.  

Yes, delete item retention is turned on.
If the message has been deleted from a folder other than the Deleted Items folder you will need to make a registry change. This will give you the "Recover Deleted Items" menu on each folder.
This change either needs to be made on the user's own machine, or on your machine and you then access their folder yourself. It is a per client machine change.

In the registry, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options

Add the following value:

Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1

Restart Outlook. Then go to the folder that you think the message was deleted from. Click on Tools, Recover Deleted Items. If it is greyed out then there is nothing to recover.
