Recover email to Outlook from an iOS device

Our company recently lost email when a RAID array on the Exchange server died.  During the recovery attempt, we discovered that our Exchange backups were also bad.  The end result is a total loss of email.  

In some instances, I have been able to retrieve email from Outlook .ost files for those who were using Cached Exchange.  However, for those who were not using Cached Exchange, is it possible to recover emails, contacts, and/or calendars from their iOS devices (iPad or iPhones)?  

One user, in particular, has a backup of her iPad from last month which contains a number of important contact information. Is there any way of retrieving this information, even if just a limited amount of it?

If you can copy the contacts to the SIM

Once done, you should be able to set the sync to a two way sync on the Ipad
If the user new exchange mailbox has no contacts in it, it should sync it back

Hopefully this will work with calendar as well

Otherwise, you pretty much limited to a very manual process of writing them down and re-entering in outlook

Of COURSE you can backup the contacts from the iPHone and import them into Outlook.

At least a couple of ways:

http://www.copytrans.net/copytranscontacts.php

http://www.iphonebackupextractor.com (requires you to use iTunes to back up the iPHone first)

https://itunes.apple.com/app/my-contacts-backup/id446784593?mt=8

Take your pick, they'll all do what you want here.

The "My Contacts Backup" app helped to get the contacts restored.  Thanks for your assistance.
