I have a question about restoring INDIVIDUAL emails into a Mac Outlook 2011 database. I lost about a month of saved POP emails. Let me explain my setup:

1) I use Time Machine and every 2 months I swap out the "A" TM drive with the "B" TM drive so I can always keep a fairly recent backup off-site. My current TM drive is "B" and it was hooked up on November 12... meaning that the "A" TM drive has my TM backups from September 12 to November 11. Make sense?

2) On November 17, 2011 (last Thursday) I installed an update to Mac Outlook 2011 and needed to rebuild the database upon reboot (I know, it sucks, but somehow MS can't seem to fix this issue).

3) I suspect that it somehow used my Time Machine drive to perform that rebuild, because I have POP emails from BEFORE September 12, and AFTER November 11, but NO EMAILS from September 12 to November 11.

THE QUESTION: Can I go back and get the "A" TM drive, find the POP emails from September 12 to November 11 and bring them back into my machine? Some experience with this in the past leads me to believe that Outlook will not take kindly to me "inserting" emails into a folder. I think I've tried something like this in the past -- necessitating another rebuild.

IS THERE A WAY TO DO THIS? Or is there a utility out there that would help? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
