Is there away to recover deleted private messages?

Normally no. Sometimes, you can get the recipient to forward the PM history if they did not delete their side. In extreme cases, we can recover them through a server roll back (but that would be in EXTREME cases).

When a message is deleted, there is no trash bin like most inboxes. It goes poof.

This is true. Perhaps you have a message chain sitting in your sent folder!

Once you delete it, it's gone. The only way to retrieve it is from the recipient or the unicornishly rare server rollback (Seriously... without a court order, you're more likely to see an ACTUAL unicorn!).
It should be totally gone from your Sent messages (happened to me before).

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.
