Lost modified Windows Mail Attachment

I have the exact same problem but with Windows Mail rather than Outlook--any advice? I would like to try the Registry Editor method, but I don't know where to look since it's Windows Mail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    My problem is that I opened an attachment from an e-mail in Windows Mail. I then modified it and repeatedly saved it----but apparently I had never saved it to the hard drive. Instead, I guess I was just saving to a temporary file. Apparently another user had the same problem with Outlook, and someone suggested a solution that involved using the Registry Editor to find the temporary file. I would like to do this, but I'm not sure how to modified the solution for Windows Mail.

This program, "Windows Live Mail" is available for free download from M/S.

Can you just re-download it?

I had to find a spell checker but I love the program compared to O/E, though O/E was ny client of choice since introduction.

    I did not understand your situation. I think I may now have a better handle on what you want.



    Up front, if you saved the attachment, it went onto some device and most likely, your hard drive. Do you have other storage media attached to your computer? A floppy drive (?) a jump drive? It would be a lot of hoops to jump through to save to cd or dvd so I suspect you didnt use this method.



    Ok, do this, send yourself a e-mail with some attachment. Do what you did before to "save" or "save as" and take a look at the "path" that appears in the window that opens up. Jot down the path and then go find it manually. It will be C:\ something ... ... ... ... ...



    Alternatively, if yo know the name of the attachment, you can have windows search your computer for the file. In W xp, click start, select search. Enter your file name in the box. There are a doxen <> options you can select including when it was saved or type of file. You can also look for "temp" folders where you can search manually.



    Upi can search for it yourself if you want ... in XP, select my documents and start looking for IE and or temp. These files are usually hidden by default.



    It is my opinion you will not find any help in your registry



    If you need more help, please let me know and I will try to be of assistance.

Windows Mail has replace Outlook Express.

Windows Mail has more performance than Outlook Express. However it's impossible to download Outlook Express. Keep in Mind that Outlook Express is incompatible with Windows Vista.

Lost word modified doc opened from outlook attachment


If you still have this problem and are using Microsoft Office 2007, run registry editor (regedit.exe) and scroll to the following location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security

Copy the contents of the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" key and paste it in the Windows Explorer to open the OutlookSecureTempFolder. Your file will most probably be here. This location can not be browsed to and can only be found from the registry as it is different for all users. e.g. for myself it is as follows:

D:\Users\keekus\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\R34DKK8O\

Outlook Express Not Receiving Attachments From One Sender


  1. Open Outlook Express
  2. Click on Tools->Message Rules->Mail
  3. Check the Mail Rules and Blocked Senders tabs
This is just a preliminary check for anything that may be modified that could be causing your problem. Since the issue is with a specific sender, I would check there first.

I'm unable to open .eml attachment in Windows Vista.


Here's some info: E-mail message saved by Microsoft Outlook or other e-mail program; may also contain an e-mail attachment, or file sent with the message. Note: If EML files will not open in Outlook Express, try the following:
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Select Folder Options from the Tools menu.
  3. Click the File Types tab.
  4. Under Registered file types, select EML Outlook Express Mail Message, then click Advanced.
  5. Click Open, then click Edit.
  6. Type the following line in the "Application used to perform action" box:
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE" /eml:%1
  7. Click OK twice, then close the window.
EML files may also be opened in Internet Explorer since they are formatted the same as .MHT files; changing the file extension from ".eml" to ".mht" should cause the file to open directly in Internet Explorer.
Hope this helps.
