Try running the 10.6.8 Combo update, then the Security Update again.

I ran the 10.6.8 combo update, then the Security update again. I have the Mail icon on the desktop (but not on the dock), but it still will not open, nor does it give me any kind of error message.
This is Mail version 4.6.
Kind of surprised an OS upgrade would kill off the Mail app.

Let's go back. You had written
I performed the steps in this article -- reinstalling v10.6.8 and then reinstalling Security update 2012-004, but Mail still won't open.
Which article was that? Was it the Apple article on fixing this?
You just found a Mail icon on the Desktop after running the combo and sec updates again? You don't have Mail.app in /Applications?
Can you post a screenshot of that icon, Cmd-Shift-4, and use the camera icon above.
