Abstract: We give a direct transition from the existence of a bounded right approximate identity in the diagonal ideal for a weighted convolution algebra on a locally compact group to the existence of translation invariant means on an associated weighted $ {L^\infty }$-space, thus giving a characterization of amenability for such an algebra.
