    WTH....? Where Did My Drafts Mail Folder Go?
    I went to pull up a saved email and my Drafts folder is gone.....disappeared into thin air. Has anyone else experienced this with iMac? How can I get it back, or do I have to do the total re-install again?
    Thanks in advance

    On my machine, the Drafts folder only appears when there is something in it.

    To test this, you could start a new message, type a few words -- then just leave it for a short while. I suspect the Drafts folder will appear shortly, having auto-saved your unsent message.

    By Gosh, it worked. I just saved something in it and it re-appeared mysteriously. I guess the only mystery now is where did my other saved emails end up. Oh well, at least I got my drafts box back
    Thanks Chas.

    Sent emails are all in your "Sent" folder.

    Yeah, get used to that "only appears when I need it" thing. Apple loves doing that.
