not really easy.

The best option is for in the future to turn on message journaling. i like to save my journaling to a public folder and backup to a PST every once and a while. I dont know how you would do it .. perhaps making a recovery storage group, but i dont know.

Even if you restored the database who knows if the user deleted it before the round of backups.

If its not that old you could try looking in tools/recover deleted items.

Hi,

The simplest method would be to create a Recovery Storage Group and then restore a backup of the database from the time that you need to recover the e-mails to the RSG. If you don't have a backup of the Exchange databases that goes back that far then no you couldn't get them back unless they are backed up somewhere else.
