I have a Access app that creates some emails and dumps them into the Drafts folder of Outlook.  I can send them but I can't delete them if need be until each email is opened first in the Drafts folder.  Say if I process a run with 50 emails in error and they need to be deleted.  Having to open each one first is very time consuming.  This happens with Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007.

Any ideas on why the emails in the Draft folder simply cannot be deleted  will be appreciated.
