I had opened an email message that someone sent me. In the message was
an attachment displayed right below the subject line. I right clicked
on it and tried to click on "save as". However, instead I accidentally
clicked on Remove. Much to my surprise it has now deleted the
attachment! I have not closed Outlook yet for fear it will disappear
forever. I tried to right click again but there is no option to undo
or view attachment either from within the message or in my inbox. I
found some info about the Temporary folder that Outlook stores
images , attachments, etc.. and when I looked inside that folder it
did not have the attachment in there. I tried my best to "google" this
issue but I have come up with nothing please help me.
