Yep, it saved the copy that was in /tmp/$UID/..../$TEMPDOCNAME
Notice the use of past tense.... being in /tmp, it is likely gone now.
However, check /tmp/$UID (where $UID is the account's user id number -
usually 501 for the first account created on the machine), as providing
you haven't restarted Mail since then, you might be lucky and it *might*
still be there.
