The updated document was saved to the IE Temporary Internet Files (TIF).
That's where WLM saves a temporary copy of attachments when you open
them from within WLM.
You cannot update an attachment within a WLM message. You need to save
the attachment and then open it, or if you open it from within WLM, you
need to use the File, Save As option in the application to save the
updates to some place other than the TIF.
There is chance that the updated attachment is still in the TIF.
Any attachments, if they are still there, will Not show if you look at
the TIF from IE or the Windows Explorer normally. On Win XP You will be
able to see them if you use Start, Run and enter the command:
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\
C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
where XXXX is the Windows user. This assumes that you have not moved
the TIF. You can check the actual location by looking in IE at Tools,
Internet Options, General, Temporary Internet Files, Settings. The
\Content.IE5\ at the end is import or else you won't be able to see all
the files. You should see 4 folders with names such as A1B2C3D4.
You'll need to look in each folder for the missing files. The Search
function won't work.
An alternate access method is to open a Command Prompt window and use
"DOS" commands to locate and copy the file elsewhere. If you start at
the folder above the TIF and use the command
DIR /A /S *.XLS
(or whatever the file extension is) it will indicate if the file is
still there. You'll need to use a COPY command to copy the file
elsewhere. This will be cumbersome because of the peculiar folder
