This doesn't really help we have the mail box, but the use deleted messages and the recover deleted items was not enabled, so we are looking for a way to recover just a few messages.

ieve19tech,

If you have an OST file, which is Outlook offline file when using an Exchange, look for the emails there.

If you are using an Exchange, and no OST file, then the deleted items are gone. Sorry!
There is one other arena of hope.  Do you back-up exchange using Symantec or some other exchange back-up modality?
