"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If its beyond the retention period you can recover the items from the backup if you are using brick level backups (i.e. backing up the individual mailboxes).  Third alternative is to restore to the recovery group, take what you need and then delete the restore.

But hopefully the previous note worked.

I succesfully used this instructions to recover messages (as immediately as possible after deletion) that were deleted by my users using "shift+delete" (entire folders). Even the article is for Outlook 2003 I used also on Outlook 2007 PST files.

Be carefull - you must try as soon as possible after "disaster", orherwise any other received mesage will lower your recovery chances...
Try email recovery software if the emails are permanently deleted -
