    When I log onto my MAIL icon it just bounces once and does not open. Same goes for Safari HOWEVER the Firefox, Excel, Word icons open.
    I have tried re-booting but no luck. As a back up I am using Entourage for my email but prefer to use MAIL, as well would like to use Safari again! What do I need to do to get these working again?

    Can you open Console? (/Applications/Utilities/Console.app) Do you see anything unusual in the logs?

    If you have not already checked, run updates for your system from the Software Update option under the Apple menu. If there are any for Mac OS X or Safari, install them and check if the issues persist. You should be running 10.5.8/10.6.2 and Safari 4.0.4.
