The reply button can be added to the Mail Toolbar by right clicking that toolbar and selecting Customize. Find the button you want and drag it into place on the toolbar. It is also on the header bar of the Message Pane. Pressing F8 turns that on and off.

What is keeping you from sending messages? That is a completely different window from the inbox or a message window or tab. The Send button is in the Composition (Write) window.

Sorry, it is the Composition window that is missing. You can tell I am not familiar with all the terms and am learning as I go. Thanks for any help in restoring the Composition window.

This does not work. I have tried the Write button, the Forward button and the Reply button but no composition menu opens. Need another fix, it is a puzzler. Even when I hi-lite a message to delete it, no delete button appears.
