Exchange Mail box

As long as you had set a deleted item retention setting for the server, you can get back any message that was deleted withing that time frame.
By default deleted item retention is not set, which causes messages to be discarded from the users mailbox as soon as the shift-delete or empty deleted items was done.
If retention was set then you can recover any item deleted in any folder.
You need OL97 v8.03 or higher. Refer to MSKB Q178630 for the reg setting to enable the dumpster for all Outlook folders.
