Hi, I turned on my G5 this morning and launched my Mac Mail (version 3.6) only to find that it was prompting me to reinstall it from fresh. I thought this was strange but re-configured one of my email addresses thinking that the sent and received emails would appear back into my mail application. Unfortunately this didn't happen and I am now left with a blank Mac Mail!!!! Can anyone please advise, on how I can retreive  both my email accounts by using Time Machine, I have already looked on the forum but have been unsuccesful, maybe because I am using OS Leopard? I really need both accounts returned to normal, but I have no idea on how to do this.  Both my email accounts are POP mail accounts and have now completely disappeared! Any solutions will be most welcome. Thanks
