  1. Why does my draft folder in my mail app, shows outgoing porn emails.


    Hi,


    I have Windows 10. I use the MAIL app that came with the OS. Once in a while, when I get back to an email I have not finished, it's stored in my draft folder. When I open the draft folder, it shows out going porn emails. I'm the only one that uses the computer. And I'm not sending them out on purpose. Obviously I have some kind of virus/malware on my computer. Do you recommend a specific application to remove these email attempts.


    I am aware of viruses/spam-ware. But this seems very specific. Is there a known virus/spam-ware that does this? I know certain infections are known to act on a computer, in a specific way.


    I just wondered, other than the traditional virus/spam-ware removal, is there something specific to this situation, I can do.


    Alex

    :)

    Mail app issues - whenever I click on Drafts folders to delete the draft Windows 10 Mail App closes.

    @JT

    So the answer is ridiculously simple. If anyone else also stumbles across this, this worked at least for me.

    • Create a new email to yourself but don't send it! This will then show as another saved draft in that Draft Folder, but it'll be an uncorrupted one, or whatever is the problem with the other draft that's undeletable and causing the Mail
      App to crash.
    • Close the Mail App and go get a cup of coffee.
    • Open the Mail App again. Click on the Draft Folder, and now that it contains a
      good draft in it also, the folder will stay open and not crash. Simply right click on the offending draft and select delete.
    Since it's incomprehensible to assume that the original poster could
    even possibly solve his/her own problem, could a Moderator mark this as solved and as the solution?

  3. Two Draft Folders In Windows Mail Application.

    Hi Mark,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    In order to get clarity on this issue and assist you with appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    Was the extra Drafts folder added automatically?



    You cannot delete the Draft folder as this is the default folder in the Mail Application.



    You can delete the Drafts (start) folder by right-clicking on the folder as this has been added extra to the folders in the Mail application.



    Before deleting the Drafts folder, please backup/move all your emails if you have in the Drafts folder.



    You can refer Customize the folder list
    in Mail for Windows
    and How
    do I add or remove folders in Mail for Windows 10?
    for more information on these extra folders added in Mail Application.



    If you are still unable to delete the folder, then I suggest you to
    Completely Delete The Email Account From Mail Application

    and Setup The Account again.



    Please feel free to contact us back, in case you have any other questions/issues with Windows in future.

    Why does my draft folder in my mail app, shows outgoing porn emails.

    Windows 10 mail app shows a draft that does not exist and will not delete an email from the trash.

    I had the same problem. There was no draft email in my outlook.com web app, but there was a "1" showing up next to the draft folder in my Windows 10 Mail app.

    Solution:

    1. In Windows 10 Mail app, click "New Mail" (that's all you have to do. Don't send.)

    2. Then go to your "Drafts" folder

    3. Delete any drafts you have there.

    4. That should clear the draft folder and remove the "1".
