    Saved emails not going to my Drafts folder?


    For some reason, emails that I am writing that I close and save are not going to my Drafts folder. I checked the setting in Outlook, lowered the number of minutes needed before its saved to 0 and directed it to my Drafts folder but still nothing. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for reading.

    :)

    Save drafts.

    Never having used Hotmail particularly in a Browser, then I suspect that there was some setting to enable that. That's certainly NOT normal behaviour. The point of a Drafts Folder is just that - it's
    temporary storage for a mail that you've started but are not ready to send.

    See my comment above.

    I don't understand why you would want to save an email to Drafts automatically - that's not what the Drafts folder is for. And yes, that's normal behaviour for the draft to vanish when the email
    is sent - the email can be found in your Sent Items folder.

    The only thing that I can think of, is that somehow, in the past, you have managed to set the Drafts Folder to be the location for sent emails.

  3. WP10 is not saving body of draft emails

    When typing an email and interrupted, then returning to that email in drafts, the To: address remains as well as the topic, but the body of the draft email does not appear.

    Is there a save button that I've been missing? Or some steps I'm doing wrong?

    What a pain!

    Saved emails not going to my Drafts folder?

    windows live mail sent emails appear in draft sent folder and not sent folder

    I'm not sure I understand how you know that the message in your drafts folder is sent. Is there some visible indication of this or are you assuming that it went and now sits in the drafts folder?

    Anyway, I'm sure you're sending emails properly, but to confirm with you the following: when you compose an email and save it in Drafts, it will remain in Drafts even though you hit the Send/Receive button to send it. While in Drafts, it needs to be double-clicked
    back into the edit screen and then you press Send. It then goes into the Outbox folder and when you press Send/Receive it then goes to the recipient and your email gets saved in the Sent Folder. I just state this to make sure that this is all correct with
    you and that's what you have been doing.

    If the above is what you have been doing, then I suggest that you send a test email back to yourself. Does this email still mysteriously moves into the Drafts folder? And do you eventually receive it into your Inbox?

    If you are not receiving your email back to yourself and it moves from Outbox and into Drafts folder as Sent, then I would ask, is your email account a Pop3 or IMAP account?

    One other thing: when in Live Mail, click on View and then on Storage Folders. A new listing Storage Folder with sub folders will appear on the left. Are there any emails (particularly the email in question) found in any of the boxes under Storage Folders?
