recover deleted items report from exchange as opposed outlook

Is there anyway from exchange server (2010) to get a report on a specific mailbox that represents the same information shown in Outlook (when connected to an exchange mailbox) in the view > recover deleted items information, crucially the subject, deleted on and from columns. I cannot see an obvious command or technique that could do this?

Could you please clarify me better about which one is your objective? I do not get it very clear.

One way of getting what a user has in his mailbox, in this case the recovery container item, is to execute a mail discovery search that includes the content of the 'Purge' and send the information to a different mailbox.

In order to use this function, first you need to have the Import/Export permission. You can get it with this command:
New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Name "Import Export_Organization Management"  -SecurityUser <yourUser>  -Role "Mailbox Import Export"

Then you can conduct the search against the desired mailbox, example:
Get-Mailbox  <NameOfTheMailboxToSearch>   –Database <TheDBNameWhereIsTheMailbox>  –ResultSize Unlimited | Search-Mailbox  -TargetMailbox AdminSearchMailbox -TargetFolder “Search001”  –SearchDumpster

Using the switch: SeachQuery you can filter and reduce your search
