hi I went the link lotvic suggested and lots of exchange of ideas but seems no soluttion. Emails seem to get lost in a variety of ways. One suggested to go to recreate Outlook profile on the client side to check this issue. I do not know how to do this and seems no response that this fixed problem. Any suggestions? thanks

I think you should be investigating why microsoft outlook is forced to shut down.

You haven't given any details on that.

OE shuts down because I do it manually as it goes into freeze mode. probably when computer has been on for a few days and many emails opened. That email lost must be somewhere. i did an advanced word search and did not find it, maybe it has been deleted when I forced the OE shut down. Did not have a an email address on it. thanks

Microsoft Outlook (part of MS Office) and OE (Outlook Express) are two different programs.

OE (Outlook Express) isn't available with Windows 7 it's replacement is Windows Live Mail.

To clear up confusion - which one are you using?

I think it pointless to look for the partly composed email. I think it will have been discarded when the program closed. Obviously I don't know that for certain but those are my thoughts on it.
