Are they in the deleted items folder? If you emptied the deleted items
folder, do you have a backup? If no back up, your chances of recovering them
in slim and none - see http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/recover_deleted.htm

If you are attached to a corporate Exchange server, you may be able to
recover the deleted items. If you're attached to an ISP's mail system, you
may be out of luck.

If you're connected to an Exchange server, click on the deleted items
folder. If they are not in there, then click the Tools menu and choose
Recover Deleted Items.

This will only work if the Exchange Admin has Deleted Item Recovery turned
on. Many do but many don't. Those that do can choose a varying amount of
time to allow you to recover, from 1 day to 28. What you should do if you
have an Exchange mailbox (usually used in businesses or universities), is
contact your Exchange Admin and ask if DIR is turned on and if it is, how
many days you have to recover something you've deleted.

As you have accidentally deleted in your emails present in your Exchange Server environment, then I can suggest that to overcome this problem of hard deletion, I can suggest to try a third party tool which does such operations in a simplified way. Moreover the tool also does a quick repair and recovery of corrupt emails present in .EDB format.


Today, many tools are available online and you can select any one of them. You can find all tools on the web by making a search on Google.

But, I would suggest you to test the demo version first before making the buying decision for any tool. One of the most popular, trusted and globally used outlook emails recovery software is listed here:

This software will show you the preview of recovered email in trial version.
