If you deleted his mailbox when you deleted his username (which is the default) then no you can't get it back unless it was backed up somewhere.
Try looking for the .pst or .ost file on the computer he used to use.

If he used Outlook in 'cached exchange mode' (which I believe is also default) then the files should still be on his computer.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Sir its not exchange 2003, In exchange 2007 if you delete a user account from AD and not from the exchange the mailbox of the user will go to the dumpster and you will need to reconnect the mailbox with a new user. If this recovers the mail then fine otherwise you will need to go through the RSG process if you have any backup. To do the RSG follow below links

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Working-Recovery-Storage-Groups-Exchange-2007.html

http://www.petri.co.il/using_rsg_in_exchange_2007.htm

But this will restore only those mails which were exist on the mailbox at the time of backup. You will loss all the mails after the backup.
First try to connect the mailbox. if you get the mails then fine otherwise go through the RSG.

It depends what your retention time limit is. If the mailbox was disconnected too long it gets deleted.
