Question
running iMac Intel core duo w/snow leopard 10.6.8.  How can I retrieve a deleted email with Time Machine
or any other way

Answer
First, back up your computer in Time Machine.  Then go back to a date prior to when it was lost but after you received it.  You can make your computer then BE that previous date.  Find the e-mail, mail it to yourself again.  Now go back to Today and ask it to be your latest save ... check your e-mail and you should have the mail you are seeking.
