go to the exchange server, then to the M drive.  
Find the users folder(not hard, there's a only a couple of folder).
go to their sent items.
you'll only have limited data so you need to know what you're looking for.

Please don't accept this answer UNTIL this question has been moved to the exchange TA.

If they archived the item, then you'll need to access their PST file, which is located on their computer.  you can check their archive settings for the file location.
please note that Mike's answer is ALSO a solution.
his solution will allow you to check the email using outlook.

The user has deleted all the "sent" items and we need to access a sent email. Would the message still be available if the user deleted the "sent" items folder?
