We have our e-mail system setup in such a way that if someone shift+deletes an e-mail in Outlook 2010, they are still able to recover the e-mail in Outlook using the recover option.

Our question is if they delete it from that option/window, how long does it reside on the server or is it gone for good? Could it be recovered the following morning from backup? We have our Exchange 2010 server save deleted e-mail for 14 days so even e-mail that is deleted from the recover option could still be recovered from a backup tape 14 days later?
