Unhappy mozilla -mail stopped working after up2date

I have been using mozilla -mail in Red Hat 9 successfully, but after my last up2date for a security patch in mozilla, I no longer have a -mail option in mozilla. When I click on the Window pull-down menu in mozilla, the only options are Navigator (^1) or Composer (^4). I used to also have Mail and Newsgroups (^2). Executing mozilla -mail from the command line brings up Navigator (i.e. ^1).

The mozilla version is now 1.4.2 (not sure what it was before). I must have the required features somewhere on my system to use -mail, but have no idea where to look or what to do. I am more of an applications developer than a system administrator. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if this would be related at all, but I am running an older kernel (2.4.20-8smp) than the most recent on my system because I haven't been able to successfully compile a driver for my network card for the newer kernels that have been installed through up2date.

Try using the button that launches mozilla mail at the bottom of the mozilla broswer...

There are only 2 buttons, corresponding to the options from the Windows pull-down (i.e. no button for mail)
