Outlook automatically closes new e-mail composition after draft is created.

We are having an issue with Outlook 2007.  Whenever a new e-mail is composed and is left alone for a while (the user walks away from the computer for 10 minutes or so), Outlook will automatically save a draft of the new composition and close the message.  After the user comes back, they are confused because the e-mail they were creating is gone, but it can be found in the Drafts folder.  Normally, the message shouldl stay on the screen after Outlook auto-saves the drafts.  Is there an option somewhere that needs to be changed to keep the new composition from closing whenever a draft is saved?

Thank you

Any ideas on why it would be closing the message instead of leaving the message open as it normally should?

Honestly I would just re-install Office and see if it stops.
