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?

Yup. I didn't have much luck there, and since this is a more trafficked forum, and one that normally gets good replies, I thought I'd give it another try.
