    Hi all.

    I just downgraded my mac from Lion back to Leopard using time machine.
    I forgot to save an email i need that i got when I was on Lion.

    Can I use time machine just to obtain the email?
    Everything is backed up on time machine.

    But i dont want to re install Lion to get it.

    Can any one help me out here?

    As long as you have not selected to remove email from your ISP server after it's downloaded, you should be able to download it again via the web. GMail, my ISP server, will retain email forever (as long as I don't exceed space limitations) provided I leave received mail on the server after it's been downloaded.

    Your topic title makes it sound like this is a job for someone with a whip and a chair. I'd go with chasg's suggestion though.
