Do you mean there was an attachment in the email with the same name a file already saved locally?

You can have as many emails as you want with the same subject.

What email client is he using?

The new attachment with the same name will have been saved to a new part of the local disk and the old one removed/deleted.

Search for a tool GetDataBack and see if that can recover the file.
Also try PhotoRec < recovers more than just images.
