    Something has changed in last 6 months or so of fast release Office 365, such that I've often thought I had sent mail only to find it in draft folder, usually, but not always unsent.

    I don't think I'm doing anything differently.

    If you had an imap account or use an exchange account on two (or more) computers, check the sent folder and see if it was sent. IMAP is notorious for creating a new copy in Drafts each time the message is saved. Exchange doesn't do that, but i have seen it sync the Draft but not delete it from the other computers after its sent. This doesn't happen all the time, often enough that i noticed and not frequently enough to figure out why.

    I have a bad habit of starting an email then getting distracted and outlook is restarted by an update (or crashes) and i forget to go back to the email. :(
