When I go in and try to send a picture through windows explorer (find a picture, on the left side of windows explorer it says "e-mail this file) so when I do that and press save, the messages is saved so that editing is still an option, but it is saved in the inbox instead of the drafts. But, if I open up a new message through Outlook (clicking the new button in the upper left corner) and save it, the message will be saved in the drafts. ps: I am using xp home and outlook 2003. Thanks, Brian Mullins
The "solution" (XCLN: Messages Not Saved to Drafts Folder" (MS Knowledge Base 247813)) merely states that MS Outlook's default is to save messages every 3 minutes to the Drafts folder! As the subject heading of this MS KB 247813 states, however, the problem is that messages ARE NOT being saved to the Drafts folder! The "solution" to my reading seemingly ignores this and offers no "way around" or correction of the problem. This sort of response in MS "Help" is so frustrating. It seems so patently obvious that the "solution" offered seems not even to address the stated problem. Am I missing something here? My Outlook 2000 SR-1, by default, saves my messages to my INBOX folder! Why, I have no idea. How do I change this behaviour? Thanks for any suggestions. Vere.
Sometimes when a message is saved it will appear in the Inbox instead of the Drafts folder. Eventhough the setting to save unsent items is set to drafts. I know that others have had this issue. Any suggestions are causes for it? Also can anyone point me to a TID that addresses it so that I may show that it is a known issue.

But when I save the email from File > Save or hit ctrl + S and close the drafted email and I dont see them in the draft folder or any folder. can you please help on this.
