I wrote a lengthy email and selected the wrong button when closing Outlook Express before I sent the email. Is there a copy stored in a temp location where I can retrieve it?

Generally the temp files created during a program are cleared when the program is closed. So if you had closed Outlook Express and said you didn't want to save the unsaved message, it would be removed and not recoverable.

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is "you can't do that" which is basically what I told the poster. Therefore I feel my answer is legitimate.
