Hotmail infuriation with over-written drafts

Once upon a time, email drafts in Hotmail worked like typing into Word documents. If you screwed something up, you could simply close out and start over. Or you could "save as" with a different title.

However, at some point, Hotmail switched - at least for me. If something gets screwed up - for me, notably, if you highlight something and mistakenly paste instead of copy - you lose your draft. It automatically saves, over-writing your original.

But before I start ranting at them - is there some way around this, some option or function that I can change, to stop this?

I don't know, but hotmail and owa are very similar systems. If you have access to owa see if the problem occurs there to.
