Is there a way to retrieve an email draft that was lost when I went into my address book?

I composed a long email but switched windows to the address book check on an address and lost the draft. Is there a way to retrieve it?

Do you have your email settings set to save drafts?  If not, and you didn't click on save draft on the toolbar I think youbarevautomatically of lock.

To see if you have the option set up, go tontgevInbox,malicious on Preferences , then click on EMAIL.  All yourvsettingsvcome up.  Go to COMPOSING and see if save drafts is on.  If not, turn it on so it is available next time.

Thanks for trying to help. I did not have save drafts automatically set in my preferences so the message was lost. I have now changed that setting.
