How to recover mailboxes in Exchange 2010

I have a question regarding the native ability of Exchange 2010 rollup 4 to recover historical emails going back just over a year for some staff. Some staff are still employed, others not.

Is there a way for me to use Exchange and perform these functions? I want to see all folders and deleted items, including the Deleted Items Recovery queue.

Is this possible?

How far back do your backups go? And what backup software are you using? It really depends on your backup and recovery solutions.

Also, you do have retention periods in Exchange 2010 for deleted items which by default is 30 days. If you need to recover deleted items beyond this time frame, then you will have to use your backup  and recovery solution to recover deleted items and also mailboxes.

Alright, that is exactly what I thought was going to be the case. The client has a 30 day retention policy so based on what you said I will need to speak to their BDR vendor.

I'll give it a little more time in case someone has some additional ideas for me before closing the question.
