    I recently received an e-mail from free lotto advising that I am a possible winner. I saved the e-mail as "save as new" but now the system has deleted it and I can not find it anywhere...

    I am running windows 2000 and XP, the ISP is AOL 9.0 (Broadband)
    Can you help?

    Hi bobbremner

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    May I ask why you would want to locate a piece of SPAM?
    Or are you just pulling our leg?

    Were you using AOL's mail server when you received the message or are you downloading your messages onto the hard drive?

    What's one person's spam is another person's treasure. I hate when the 'system' deletes mail of any kind. It deleted 2 letters from a friend that I wanted to reread, low and behold the next day they were gone. This is too weird and why hers and nobody else's. The Phantom strikes again?
