I am sorry to hear your email icon was missing on the bottom of your home screen, Ruth. Let me work this issue resolved and get the icon back. Was the icon related to an app? Do you have access to the iCloud? Perhaps you can check the Apple store for the email to restore the icon or check your iCloud to see if you backup up your device to get the icon restored.
