Retrieving Emails from Exchange 2010

All,

My organization is going through litigation and we are being requested to furnish email for a time period dated 3 years ago.  I'm more so new at this organization and don't think they have any retention policies.  In completing a multi-mailbox search there were none that showed up for one year (around 2011) and only limited amounts for 2012.  Does anyone know where these deleted items would be on the exchange server by any chance?

All help would be great.

Deleted Items are only held for 14 days by default  :http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee364752(v=exchg.141).aspx

what is your Deleted Items retention period?  Also do you have mailbox size limits in effect for your users thereby requiring them to Archive or delete items?

without retention tag you cannot find the data, or last option is to restore backup's and fetch the data....again it depends on the backup retention period.
