If you deleted her account there's every chance that you also ticked to remove the mailbox. So, you need to race into ESM as quick as a flash. Look for her name and there should be a red x by it. That means her mailbox still exists but is about to be purged.
If there are two of her name you need to export her new mail into a PST and then remove the mail attributes from her new account.
Then you need to right click on the mailbox with the red x and all the mail in it and select reconnect. That will allow you to browse to her new account (that exists but hasn't got a mailbox) and reconnect.

You should not have done anything with the AD account and mailbox just because there was a problem with the roaming profile, the two are totally unrelated aspects.

ok, I did that.   i went into the ESM, and it reconnected, then i logged into her account as her and salvaged the email now, it asks me for a user name and password.  i had to put my user name and password to get connect to the mailbox, how can i connect ussing her user name and password.  ok so i have to export her mailbox from outlook then use her new email with her new email address and import the pst file is this correct.

I hope you haven't done this in the wrong order.
You needed to go into her account as it stood a while ago and export her mail (from her new mailbox) to a PST file.
THEN you needed to go and remove her mail attributes.
THEN you needed to reconnect her OLD mailbox to her NEW Active Directory account.
Then you log on as HER to her AD Account and recreate the MAPI profile (to make sure all is tidy and clean)
Then you import that PST file you exported a little earlier.
You shouldn't ever have needed to log onto her mailbox as you or anything. Just her as her.
You may well have had to wait for AD to catch up though. This isn't something you can do in 30 seconds.
