    I hate Gmail at times. When you are typing out a long email and lose connection to the wifi. It doesn’t save a draft or if it does it is normally only a few sentences. Hate it…. Can it be recovered?

    This happened to me and I was cursing a blue streak as I had spent a couple of hours drafting the message. Then I thought of something. I looked in my browser history and there it was!

      When I first lost a Gmail message, I vowed to draft my long messages in MS Word where I can copy and paste them in my Gmail messages. If the message is short, I often copy it to the clipboard or paste it to the dropdown Notepad that is usually open. The undo trick does not always work. A weakness in my system is my advancing age. As the distance between 85 and 90 gets shorter, the problem increases. Why do drafts disappear with no explanation? Shouldn’t it be a simple fix?

    You are a genius – I quickly put my phone on flight mode and the deleted draft was still there. Thank you so much!

    My cat deleted my draft that I had spent over an hour researching and typing out.
