Mail app has disappeared after getting 8.1

Tom-Smith asked on
After installing windows 8.1, many of the apps on my start screen appear to have been removed. Most of them are not essential, however the mail app IS essential, and i would like it back!!

I have tried looking in the 'all apps' screen and it isn't there, so it seems that is has been uninstalled, however when  go to the store, it says that I have it installed already, and there are no options to reinstall or fix anything.

Please help, the mail app was so convenient and i would like it back.
