On Error Resume Next
xItemCount = 0
For Each xAccount In Outlook.Application.Session.Accounts
    Set xDraftFld = xAccount.DeliveryStore.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderDrafts)
    xItemCount = xItemCount + xDraftFld.Items.Count
Next xAccount
Set xDraftFld = Nothing
If xItemCount > 0 Then
    xPromptStr = "Are you sure to send out all the drafts?"
    xYesOrNo = MsgBox(xPromptStr, vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Kutools for Outlook")
    If xYesOrNo = vbYes Then
