The mail icon in the dock now has a question mark on it and will not open when I click on it. I am unable to find the application when I do a search for it. It seems my mail application is completely gone and I need help to reinstall it if possible.
Thank you,
Julia

Do you have the Installation Disc/s for your Mac?
Have a look at this path:

YourUserAccount ~> Library ~> Mail

Hopefully all your emails will still be on your hard drive. I'm using Tiger and that's the path to my email inboxes etc but seriously I don't know if it's the same for 10.2 (Jaguar).

Use the appropriate version of Pacifist ( you can download Jaguar compatible version 2.0.1 from here ) to extract Mail.app from your Jaguar Installation Disc and reistall it.
