Find messages in Exchange mailboxes by MessageId

Last Modified: 2017-07-05
Is there a way to locate a message in someone's mailbox by the MessageId?

I don't mean by using tracking logs; that only shows me that it was delivered to the mailbox, but it doesn't show me the message actually existing in the mailbox.

I've also tried to find the message with Exchange Search to no avail. This will normally find even deleted items within the retention timeframe.
