Closing outlook closes all the windows of email which are opened.

When I have multiple emails upon and minimized on my task bar and accidentally close outlook itself, instead of a single email, it closes all of my minimized emails. Is there a way to restore those emails that I just accidentally closed - whether through Outlook or on the task bar?

Which is the version of Outlook in use (Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007 etc...)?

Well, if you close Outlook all other features like mails, contacts, calendars, etc... associated with outlook which are open and minimized would be closed.

If dialog boxes such 'Outlook Options', account settings, etc... are open, outlook cannot be closed until you close these windows that are open
