I have partioned my hard drive into two sections. One section is for Mountain Lion and the other for Snow Leopard. Unfortunately, I fooishly deleted MAIL from the Snow Leopard parition, and now I want it back. How do I go about downloading the version of MAIL that is compatible with Snow Leopard? In case you're wondering, I kept Snow Leopard because there are some valued applications that are compatible with Snow Leopard but not Mountain Lion.

    To reinstall Mail:

    1. Insert the Snow Leopard Installation disk into the computer.

    2. The disk will appear on the desktop.

    3. Double click on the "Optional Installs" folder.

    4. Double click on the "Optional Installs.mpkg."

    5. Click on (Continue) in Introduction.

    6. Click on (Continue) in Software License Agreement.

    7. Click on (Agree) to agree to the terms of the software license agreement.

    8. Click on the disclosure arrow ▶ next to Applications.

    9. Select (✓) Mail.

    10. Click (Continue).

    11. After Mail has been reinstalled, download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to bring iCal up to the most recent version.
