    I use a hotmail account for personal email. A few days ago Microsoft sent out an update that gave much better integration with Entourage, and I set up the required POP account and all was well. However, thinking I didn't need the previous account any longer I deleted it, and with it, all of my personal saved folders.

    I have a Time Capsule backup that dates prior to the change. Can anyone advise me on how I might recover just the filed emails that were on my MacBook?

    Were the folders on your computer or on your Hotmail? If it was the latter, you're screwed.

    While in mail, hit the time machine icon on your dock. This should allow you to go back in time in mail and find any old emails.
