Exchange 2010 SP1 email recovery

We have a user that left the organization, that deleted all the sent items with a hard delete. Is there any way I can recover the contents from the exchange server. I do have snapshots of the database so I can essentially mount that and do it that way but I would prefer if exchange offers some sort of mailbox recovery feature.

Exchange server by default keep the email for 7 days (Depends on "Keep Deleted Items"settings)
