Wouldn't that be "he collected a message from this girl"?

I think it suits the sentence, although I wouldn't say it myself, probably... that kinda sounds a bit military to me, like he received this message by some encrypted channels :D

Not sure what 'collecting' a message would mean exactly...

Yes, I was thinking dostał is collected and oderbrał is more like collected? I think I would normally say got but that's probably bad English!

Well, I did find "Can you collect children from school?" which takes "odebrać", so at least in some contexts it works.
