    Twice recently I wrote long emails (tothe same person). I spell checked and
    then hit Send. The screen whited out and I recieved a message "windows has
    stopped working and will now close". The email I wrote disappeared. Lost
    email and all my hard work. Thanks for any help with this problem.

    If you are scanning emails with your anti-virus program - don't.
    Email scanning is redundant at best and harmful to the email
    database at worst. Uninstall your anti-virus and then reinstall
    unchecking the option to scan emails, so it is turned off during
    the reinstallation of your anti-virus.

    Based on the information you provided, there is no way to tell
    what caused the white-out. Save a long email into your draft
    folder in case something like this might happen again.
