You should be able to get Windows Live Mail as part of Windows Live Essentials.

Not sure if you will be able to download it separately - have you tried a system restore?

I have been looking to see if it is available to download as a separate item but can't find anything for you.

Have a look here, link, "When you are in the metro apps page, you can immediately type the word that you are searching for to locate it. i.e. Mail, Messages, and People" Worth a look.

Try add or remove features in Control Panel>Programs and Features. Failing that try System Restore or the new PC Reset feature in Control Panel, this will take Windows back to when first installed.

Seems like it must be via the App Store (presumably free for standard downloads)

Google search

It's easy to 'break' an unfamiliar OS when tinkering.

Windows 8 File History might be a way of providing an easy way of restoring if you make a mistake. (I haven't played with it myself yet)

Or as mentioned, a Standard Restore, or make a full System Image to another partition/drive.
