To recovery you need to follow the steps on this link

http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2010/04/26/454733.aspx

Step 1 - perform a search over the users mailbox
              using the command   Search-Mailbox sec -SearchQuery ......

             ignore "Searching messages by using Multi-Mailbox Search"

Step 2 - Recovery (if step 1 is successful)

Just take it slow and follow each Step and sub-step....


Your other alternative is restore from backup. It may be a quicker solution....

if you can log in as that particular user.
open exchange, and go to the mail.
Click on 'deleted items'
Then goto Tools, (might need to expand the menu),
and select 'Recover Deleted Items'
By default exchange keeps deleted items for 30 days. So hurry.
It should show you a list of everything deleted in last 30 days
