hi, when you say you deleted it what do you mean, i.e. did you just drag it to the recycle bin or did you use a third party software to completely erase, as if you just dragged the files to recycle bin then i think that might have just deleted the icon, have you done a spotlight search for mail.app

No, you are running the wrong program on that disc. When the contents of it appears, scroll down and find one called something like Optional Installs or something. Run that and you'll find Mail in it.

You will need to purchase and install Pacifist so you can extract only the Mail.app for installation from your restore discs.

If you don't want to do that, then an Archive and Install will reinstall the entire OS (including your missing Mail app).

If you don't need anything in there, you can safely delete the Previous System.
