Hi,

Are you using Outlook Express for home use with an Internet Provider (using POP) or at work on a corporate mail system using IMAP?

Hi,

Is this setting set?
Select "Draft" in the folders pane.
From the menu: View > Current View > Show All Messages

Hi,

Sorry to have confused this thread, I meant to post in another forum!
I have removed the irrelevant posts.

The 'Draft' database file may have some corruption. I suspect if the 'draft' email message is missing, it will not be recoverable! Therefore...

1. The 'Draft' folder is contained in a file called 'Drafts.dbx'
2. Close Outlook Express
3. Search for this file, rename it to 'Drafts.old'
4. Re-open Outlook Express, the file will be recreated.

All messages are contained in the *.dbx files, therefore if the message is not viewable from within Outlook, then it is gone. Sad
