Recover Lost Emails During Domain Transfer? (MX Records Were Missing)

Hi there,

 
So about a month ago I transferred a client's domain from my GoDaddy account to their Godaddy account. Their domain had a G-Suite linked into it. When I transferred the domain, I did not realize that I needed to re-add in the gmail MX records into the DNS settings for the domain now on the client's account. I thought they would transfer over. I added the MX records back in and the email is working now. But for about a month now my client has not received any emails on her email address linked into her domain. Oof... 
 
Is there any way we can recover the emails my client should have received while the MX records were not added to the DNS?
 
TIA

Unfortunately no.  The MX records are what direct the email to where it'd be stored, so if those are not set up right they aren't stored anywhere.
