I am a new user to Mail 5.


I had imported all of my mail boxes and emails from Entourage -- several years worth.


Subsequent to that I have switched ISPs which required some adjustments to how email accounts were accessed.


I had continuing problems with one account that would not log on and download emails. The only solution was to delete the email account completely and install it new. The new account works.


However, all of those old emails from that account were deleted.


Can anyone suggest a way to retreive those old emails?


I have time machine installed, so in theory, those old emails could be accessed if I knw how.


What I don't want to do is to reinstate the earlier version of Mail itself since the new settings work and I have also received emails my all my accounts (12) which would be overwriten by such a global change.


What I am seeking to do is to meld the old emails into the new account so all are accessable now.


Any suggestions?
