We have recently noticed that if you start an email by clicking on the New E-Mail icon, then change your mind and close out of the email by clicking on the X in the upper right hand corner of the window, the blank email is automatically saved into your Draft folder.

Is that a new feature and is there a way to turn that off? I know you can go into the Draft folder and later delete the item, but that seems like double work.

We didn't notice this in the past... when did this change?

Thanks for any suggestions on how to stop this!
