Your extremely vague e-mail seems to indicate your friend lost all his e-mail. Is there any other way to get the mail back on his PC?

No. You have to forward them all, manually..

There is no way to copy mail from the BB to the PC over USB, or any other method..

there's also the possibility that the emails are still on the server. both BES and BIS retain the emails on the server by default. It's, of course, much easier to restore emails from a corporate mail server, but assuming you've set up your BIS to keep emails on the server you could go into your email webclient and forward from there...
