I have the code:
    Dim a As Outlook.Application
    Dim b As Outlook.MailItem
    Set a = New Outlook.Application
    Set b = a.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    With b
        .To = mstrEMail
        .Subject = "Commission Report"
        ' .BCC = "someemail2@whatever.com" '
        .Attachments.Add oFolder.Path & "\" & oFile.Name
        .Body = "Attached is your Commission Report."
        '.Send
    End With
I don't want to send. I want to put everything into the Drafts folder first. How can I do it?

you can try
.save

Saves the Outlook item to the current folder or, if this is a new item, to the Outlook default folder for the item type.

Syntax

object.Save

object   Required. An expression that returns an Outlook item object that is listed in the "Applies To" list.

i just tried save and it's working fine.

Dim a As Outlook.Application
   Dim b As Outlook.MailItem
   Set a = New Outlook.Application
   Set b = a.CreateItem(olMailItem)
   With b
       .To = "me"
       .Subject = "Commission Report"
       ' .BCC = "someemail2@whatever.com" '
       '.Attachments.Add oFolder.Path & "\" & oFile.Name
       .Body = "Attached is your Commission Report."
       .Save
   End With

maybe you need to create message in drafts forlder:
see this as a guide:

Dim myOlApp As New Outlook.Application
Dim myExplorers As Outlook.Explorers
Dim myOlExpl As Outlook.Explorer
Dim myFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Set myExplorers = myOlApp.Explorers
Set myFolder = myOlApp.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder _
    (olFolderDrafts)
Set myOlExpl = myExplorers.Add _
    (myFolder, olFolderDisplayNoNavigation)
myOlExpl.Display
