When you use Word as your e-mail editor, Word does not create an AutoRecover (AutoSave) file of your e-mail message.


This behavior is by design. If you create a new e-mail message, most e-mail programs save the new message automatically to your Inbox if you do not send it, or if the e-mail program quits unexpectedly.

The AutoRecover feature is available in Word; however, Word turns this feature off automatically when you use Word as your e-mail editor. To see the AutoRecover option, click Options on the Tools menu, and then click the Save tab.

For additional information about the AutoRecover feature, please see the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
