Outlook automatically closes new e-mail composition after draft is created.
Posted on 2008-10-01
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?
