    Apple Mail Won't Delete An Entry
    For four days I've deleted the same email in my "Drafts" folder... it goes away but next time I open Mail, there it is. Any suggestions as to how I can get rid of this thing? I even tried sending it to its original intended recipient but it showed up again! Thanks for your kind assistance.

    Are you deleting or sending the email, from the device it was originally created on?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Give this a try:

    Click on Drafts to highlight it.
    Go to top menu bar and Click on Mailbox. From Drop down menu, Click on Rebuild.

    I know, I know, it's a Folder rather than a true Mailbox, but I've had this sort things in the past, it can't do any harm, and it might work.
