My computer came back from service and the emails not sent when saved are not appearing in the Drafts folder.

I am using Outlook 2007 with Windows 7.

When I save the unsent email on the server it does appear in the Drafts folder in Outlook however when saving in Outlook it is not being saved in the Drafts folder or anywhere else.

I have to IMap accounts and the same is happening for both accounts.

How I can I resolve this issue?

Drafts for imap accounts are kept in the local drafts folder, not on the server. Double check the setting to save a draft - it's in tools, options, email options, advanced options.

Thanks for your response. You wrote that the drafts are saved in a local folder - however they still appear in the Drafts folder on the server ...

I went to Help on the Outlook Toolbar and ran the Diagnostics test. A couple of things came up however the problem cleared itself afte the diagnostic test.
