Lost how ?  Just normally deleted by the client ?  If so you can restore from backup process.

Restore a previous backup to a RSG and then use exmerge to extract the item.

There a really good chance it's totally gone... but here's something you can check:

On the recipient's computer, in Tracking Options, Process requests and responses on arrival is not selected....

If the recipient opens the original message first, the recall fails, the old (and possibly new messages) are available.


It really depends on if the person it was sent to accepted or has their client set to accept these recall actions.

Here's a link that explains all about how Exchange works with recalls.
