removed packages / add mail

I was on a file frenzy a couple of days ago and removed a couple of binaries that I intended to use,

The mail binary / (CLI interface, type #'mail' at the sh) doesn't work anymore.
I have checked through my removed packages and added everything with mail in them and searched the packages on slackwares site. ('')
With no luck!

Could anyone tell me the correct name for the slackpack?

A good way to find stuff you accidentally removed is to do some grepping in /var/log/removed_packages/ and /var/log/removed_scripts/
