It sounds as though you had a data file configured to deliver mail to, instead of delivering mail to the Exchange server mailbox itself. If you have deleted the profile from the laptop, then it was likely that the mail was stored in a PST within the profile, so you would have lost it. (Have a look in the recycle bin though on the laptop)

If you have a good backup then you could restore it to a recovery storage group and recover at least most of the mail from there. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824126

If you don't have a backup then there isn't very much you can do I'm afraid.
If you deleted his user profile it is gone, but if you only deleted the outlook profile and he is still using the same user profile the pst should still be there.
