    It depends on how long ago they were deleted, and the Exchange server settings. In Outlook, under the Tools menu is an option called Recover Deleted Items. This will recover items deleted from Deleted Items. I believe the default retention time on the Exchange server is 15 days, but that setting can be modified. If the messages were deleted longer ago than the retention time set on the server, the only option for recovery would be a restore from backup.
