After downloading the file from my email, I saved it multiple times while working on it, but never specified a name for it....is this recoverable? I don't see it in my
C:\Documents and Settings\Neil\Local Settings\Temp folder....

Please help, it took me 3 hours of work!

Word won't let anything save if it isn't given a name. Have you checked for a file named 'Doc1' or something in your 'My Documents' folder?

if the file doesn't exist in the temp folder, i'm pretty sure you can safely assume the file is gone =\
you may try a file recovery program, but that would probably only work if you haven't accessed the internet at all on that computer SINCE you modified the file (which i'm highly doubing considering you wrote this post >.<)
but the filename it would be saved as would be the same filename as the one it had on the web.
