Lost draft

I have just spent 3 hrs composing an email which was being saved, then near the end it disappeared to just 2 letters -nd! How can I find the original draft without having to rewrite! Please help. Thanks

Have you looked in the drafts folder? It should be backed up every 30 seconds or so. If it is not there then there is not much you can do once you leave the page. You can try ctrl z or use the back arrow.

 

Next time use a word processor on your computer for long emails. Then just copy and paste.

 

Before someone says so, it may exist in the cache but there is no practical way to find it.

Feel free to reply if my question or answer is not clear. Include @Barkley_Hound in the post.
