    If you go to settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Menu>Filter>All.

    Open the app tray, hold down on the e-mail icon, drop it back on the desktop...

    If it's missing from there, do you have the phone rooted? Did you disable it by mistake?

    Do not factory reset if you are running a custom rom.

    If that is the case you can factory reset. You will not loose root or SU.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is the correct way to do it.

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    cd /system/app
    mv Email.bak Email.apk
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot your phone

    Looks right, would be dependent on Email.bak being there vs the OP deleting it completely.

    If it's completely gone he may need someone to provide him a copy to put back.

    Looks like you deleted, not moved it. I would reinstall the update zip and reroot.

    Actually if you deleted email.apk the update.zip will error out saying it can't find email.apk to update it. You would need to re image your phone or have someone post the email.apk.
