If you (for example) open an E-mail in OE, opened an attachment
to that E-mail in Word, made changes to the temporary file,
then closed the Word application, then closed the E-mail window,
the temporary file would be deleted.

It's probably gone. The only time in the above scenario you could
have found it using those techniques would be before you closed
the E-mail window. Another case in which those techniques would
work would be closing the E-mail window while the Word application
still has the attachment file open, especially before you do the save.
