How to recover email lost from Windows Live Mail ?

At times, some miskeying causes the email that I am still writing, to completely vanish. It can NOT be found in Drafts, or Outbox. Is there a method of recovering it ?

You are out of luck. There is no way to retrieve an unsaved draft.

Yes, I believe you're out of luck. I've used WLM for a few years and don't believe that has ever happened to me but if it was a regular occurrence I would develop the habit of saving a draft often while composing an email.
