Is it possible to UNDELETE documents from a R5 Mail-database?

Is it possible to UNDELETE documents from a R5 Mail-database? We have not set up the option "soft delete"... The file is 580 MB big but has only 168 documents (at least 848 docs were accicently deleted). I took a look at the databse with "Notes Peek", i see an awful lot of deletion stubs but i can't recover them. Don't tell me about backup, i laughed out loud as they told me they have none... I would continue laughing but this happened at CEO-level. Do you know a trick (using a hex-editor or any other black magic) ??? Thank you in advance!
I don't know of a way to recover from this situation. Soft delete or a backup would have been my suggestions!
