Only if the notes were included in a backup.  If the mailbox is backed up at the "brick" level it should be easy, otherwise you'd have to do a whole server recovery just for these notes.

They aren't kept in "deleted items".

Unless this is VERY mission critical and this isn't your CEO, I'd advise them to be more careful in the future.

No, technically it isn't a "deleted item" such as an email or an contact would be.

Yes.  I just tested and confirmed what I posted.

And that is your only shot at it.  The contact would have to be restored and the associated notes along with it.

I understand...and that is the issue.  The contact is an "item", the notes are not.  When notes are deleted you must hit "save" to confirm those changes.

Correct, but if the notes are gone then he did no matter what he says.
