Hi,

This is a simple and probably rather naive question. If I start composing a plain text email in Outlook (2007) and save it locally as a draft (i.e. not in an IMAP folder), is there a way for me to locate it on my computer and open it in a regular text editor, should I need to? I know this would be near impossible if it were a regular MS HTML message, but I'm thinking a plain text draft sounds like the kind of thing that should be open-able and edit-able by another program easily if I start having trouble with Outlook itself.

Thanks!

You can bet if you asked, someone else was probably curious as well. Now they won't need to ask. :)
