Did you check in the Camera Roll? It isn't going to be in an album if you save it on your iphone from your iphone.

Perhaps saving it differently will work for you:

  1. Tap and hold on the video thumbnail (in the email message) that you would like to save.
  2. Select "Save to Camera Roll".
  3. Open
  4. Select the "Albums" tab.
  5. Select "Camera Roll".
  6. The video should be the last one in there.

If this doesn't work, try sending the video to yourself.
