Hello, the Red button just closes a window, it doesn't quit Mail in anyway, it sounds like you may have a Mail stuck trying to go out???
Hold CMD+alt+esc keys to bring up the Force Quit menu, choose Mail.
Let's see if this helps to start with...
Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
(Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)

I did as you suggested and it seemed to help the Mail problem, but now my Safari will not open. That's why I am using my iPad to get back.

Hmmm, are you trying Safari from the Dock? If so try opening it from the Applications folder.
Open Console in Applications>Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when this happens.
