We have a user that is deleteing their sent items and then deleting their Deleted box.  Is there a way in Exchange 2007 for us to recover these deleted items from the dumpster without accessing the users Outlook?

No need for their passwords, just assign yourself permissions on their mailbox

Add-ADPermissions "UserDeletingEmails" -user "UserWantingToRecover" -accessright fullaccess

recover them for him

remove-ADPermissions "UserDeletingEmails" -user "UserWantingToRecover" -accessright fullaccess

that's it
