    The mailbox on your desktop is the application, put it back in the Applications folder.

    No. It is just making a copy. You can hold Command when dragging it to move it, or you can drag it there then delete the one from your desktop.

    Note: If the icon in your dock doesn't work after doing this - drag it off, then open the app from the Applications folder. When the new icon appears in the dock, right-click and choose Keep in Dock ...
