The touch pad worked find until I tried to get Windows mail working and now when you tap the screen to open, close or just click nothing happens! It was working fine until then, so I am wondering if there is a setting or did I turn something off ?

Sounds like a driver issue with the touch pad. You should try and reinstall the driver.
follow that link..it will take you to the driver page for your model laptop.
The touch pad on a Dell Latitude D610 works much the same as with other laptops. You can move your finger around the pad to simulate the movement of a mouse, and it will cause the pointer to move across the screen. You can also tap on the touch pad (gently) to "click" on a file, folder, or other item. The touch pad on a D610 doesn't have a hardware switch like some other laptops do so that you can turn it on or off -- it's just always on.
just reinstall the driver for it ..if it has no driver it works just with the generic one in windows and the scroll and select will not be allowed..or install a usb mouse and will be easier to work and have all features..(in case the driver is not available for the touch pad ) here is the place to look for the pad's driver .. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=380609&rpn=PS630U&modelFilter=&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768667 this is for Toshiba m-15 s405 ...I linked it cause you placed the question in this category ..If you use another model ..select it from the download list ..also select the operation system .. If you do use this one ..but another operation system try to install it anyway but under the executable properties modify to run in compatibility with windows xp have a nice day ..and please rate my answer ...
Goto 'Control Panel - Mouse - Device Settings, Highlight the device in the list and then click settings. It Might just be that it needs re-configuring. Devices like this tend to loose there configuration due to being used so much and of course the ammount of pressure put on them. There is alot you can reset here. The touch pad does alot more than you think, We just dont bother to look at the settings because we are too busy looking at the screen,and rightly so. Im not saying this will rectify the problem but its worth a try.
Go to the 'start' button and then hit the 'control panel' option, then click 'mouse' then go to 'Device Settings' and then to the 'settings'. When you get to this screen it shows a list on lthe left hand side choose the 'tapping' option and then ok.
I couldn't find an answer online, I have a Toshiba satellite with Vista and the clicking wasn't working on the pad. I found the answer....
open control panel...
hardware and sound....
the tab Device Settings
click Tapping on the left
click the check box enable tapping
and for everyone with problems with nothing working on the pad at all hold down the FN key next to the control key and press F9
