"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You cannot save files to hotmail. You must save the file locally and upload it to a new email. If your friend opened it, edited it directly, and then saved it - it would not be saved back to the hotmail email. If your lucky it may still be located in the temporary Internet files on the computer saved under a different filename. You should be able to search for the file (*.doc or *.docx) in that directory. It may be there or it may of been deleted by the browser. If it is not there all the changes will have been lost.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

As they're temporary files it can be hard to recover them. Your best bet of recovering them is to look in: C:\Documents and Settings\[USER.NAME]\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.
