I guess I misunderstood you...was the email not deleted? when the word
"retrieve" or "recover" is used, I presume that the mail was deleted...if
the mail is still in the mailbox, all you need to do is logon to the mailbox
to view it...You can do that via Outlook or OWA...you will need to grant
yourself "user" permissions on the mailbox, or logon with the Site Services
account to do it...
