Is it possible to recover deleted messages?

Is the deleted message still saved somewhere in the Outlook data base?

We are using Outlook 2007 in Vista Basic Dell systems.

OK. We are using POP3 with pst file.
Some one in our office suggested that: as soon as we un-intentionally delete
a email message. Immediately copy this pst data file to a flash drive. Move
this pst file to another un-used computer and import into this computer's
Outlook. The message should be still in this Outlook? Correct?
