Recovering Items in Deleted folder

Our Outlook accounts are set to remove items in the “Deleted” folder that are over 2-months old.  I have a user who has just "lost" messages that are less than 1 week old but newer than 2-months.  The only messages that are now in his deleted folder are less than 1-week old.  

Do you know how to find the messages that were in this deleted folder that are missing and are less than 2-months old?

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.

In the Deleted folder click on View, Arrange By, Current View.  Make sure Last seven days is not checked.
Greetings, mrgettys !

Check the View to make sure you are not looking at a filter set of messages.  With Deleted folder highlighted, go to View > Arrange By > Messages to see all messages.

Best wishes!
if they have been deleted and not hidden by view filtering......
Are you using exchange?  and is the "Deleted Item Recovery addin loaded?

If so open the deleted items folder - TOOLS - RECOVER DELETED ITEMS.
