If you are on Windows XP, try the "search" facility - click the green start bar (bottom left) to bring it up as an option.

Or try C:, then Documents & Settings and see if there is a "Temp" folder.

Do a search for "*.doc" in All folders, with System folder searching turned on, with a date of ammended in the last 24 hours.
If that doessn't find it then your email client has broken it!

Thank you I will attempt to find the temp folder over the weekend so I never get stuck again! I ended up retyping the letter last night because it was quicker!

I had searched in the hidden folders etc so not sure what I was doing wrong.
