Easiest way to bring it back is to click on the magnifying glass right next to your clock and type in gmail. Choose the first choice under the "Application" section. After to launch the gmail app, you will see it in your dock again. To keep it permanently in the dock, simply drag it's icon to ANY other spot in the dock (does not matter where.) Dragging it to another spot tells Mac OS X that you want to keep it there.

How do I get my emails to show on my iPad as well as my laptop?

You need to go to Settings / Mail... etc / then create an account using your email details and those provided by your email supplier .. eg your ISP or Gmail etc.

You should set it up as an IMAP account to then replicate your Laptop email.

Lost mail icon can't retrieve mail

If the Mail icon has disappeared from your dock (row of icons at the bottom of your screen), do this:

  1. Click on Finder (the blue smiley-face at the left side of the dock). This will open a "Finder window".
  2. Click on "Applications" (on the left side of the Finder window).
  3. Look for "Mail" in the list of applications.
  4. Click & drag "Mail" down to the dock, between any two other Apps. You should see the two apps "scoot over" to make room for the Mail app. When you see this happen, release the mail app and it will be sitting in its new home in your dock.

My Gmail doesn't work from my Dock

Try launching it from the application in the apps folder. If that works, get rid of the icon in the dock and add a new one from the working application.

I cant connect to safari or itunes in imac OS X. A question mark symbol appears in both icons, I am able to connect to internet via windows lap top however.

I am taking it when you talking about icons it is the ones in the dock. What I think is happening is these icons have lost their association with the relevant applications. To get rid of the icons click and hold down the icons in the dock and then drag them onto the desktop this will delete the icons not the applications from the dock.

Now go to your applications folder and check that itunes and safari are in the folder. Once you have found them just single click on them and then drag them onto the dock. This should correct the problem.

If the applications are not in the folder you will have to download them from apple site again and reinstal them. Then you can use the method above to put the icons back on the dock.

Hope this helps.

How do i restore safari browser when i lost the icon

What do you mean by "lost the icon"? If it's not in the dock anymore, but still on your hard disc, you probably just dragged the icon out of the dock. Go to your Applications folder an drag the icon back in your Dock. – You can also use Spotlight (upper right corner, menu bar) to search for Safari.
