How to recover lost drafts in Netscape?

I use Netscape 7.2 and was writing a really long email. I saved it in the Drafts folder before I exited the program. When I ran Netscape again, the draft wasn't there anymore! How do I recover it?

Greetings, AntonTaj !

1. Go  to Drafts folder.  Check the View and make sure all mail are shown.

2. Go to profile to look for the draft mail.  Navigate to
C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles
C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Netscape\NSB\Profiles

and drill down to the email folder.  Look for Drafts and open it with Notepad.

These folders and files are hidden. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  Click OK.

Best wishes!

No, war1, it didn't work. I was able to read all my past drafts with Notepad, but not the latest one. Where did it go?

Check the other folders.  See if the email accidently got stored in the other folders.  If not, the draft mail is gone. Sorry!
