Simon,
What Shreedhar said is correct.  If the mailbox is not on litigation hold, after 30 days it will automatically delete.  I would  like you to also connect to o365 via powershell and run the following command to see if anything comes up.

Get-Recipient "DisplayNameoremailaddressoftheuserinquestion" -IncludeSoftDeletedRecipients | Select Identity,*Guid*

The powershell command doesn't work. Do I need to install anything ?

I can see the deleted AD account.... but how to restore the original mailbox ?

Thx.
post the error you get when running the command?
In O365 do you see the account in deleted users?
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $usercredential = Get-Credential
$session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/ -Credential $usercredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $session -allowclobber

Simon,
After Get-Recipient you are to put the user's email address or displayname. Read the command. Use the email address the user had.
