Tried and Failed

I recently upgraded to OS 10.1.5 And found the same problem with folders popping up about the place, because I'd rearranged my Applications folder (I didn't want to have all my applications sitting in one folder.... it'd take forever to scroll through and find what you're after). And I put 2 and 2 together and figured they were supposed to be new contents for the other applications. So updated them, copying over the new files into their respective locations in their applications. Having done so I tested them and they worked fine... until we came to Mail. Mail no longer opens. The icon starts bouncing in the dock and then stops without opening...
So I dived into terminal and had a look through the new folder the upgrade and dumped in the Applications folder and found an invisible file I hadn't seen before. I copied that over, but still without luck. I even moved Mail back to it's original location and doesn't do a thing either.
Then thinking all was lost I decided to reinstall Mail.... only problem being is that you can't reinstall the software that came with you computer unless you want to reinstall everything. Didn't want to do that, so I looked on the net.... not a single version of Mail is available for download on the net either.
I just don't what to do now.
Any help?

there is an app out (can be gotten on VT) called PACIFIER which is like TOME VIEWER was for OS9. You can use it to "open up" your X install CD and go after and install the tidbits you want as opposed to the whole bloomin thing...
