Retrieve Email from Server

Hello Experts, I have had 2 Employees with questionable ethics. In our handbook it clearly states the use of Email. The users have deleted the emails in question. I need to know how to retrieve emails from the SBS2003 and read them. I appreciate the help in advance.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1)login to a workstation as the Exchange Administrator.
2) Open Outlook but add a profile.  pick the name of the user that you want to see the mail of... say bobbyD.  So, in outlook set the profile to open BobbyD's mailbox.
3) Open Outlook...

You now can see BobbyD's mail...  Hopefully the mail is still in the Deleted items...

If the e-mail was in the users mailbox since you last backup, you may be able to recover the e-mail.  Here are the instructions:  http://techrepublic.com.com/5138-1035-5489322.html
