Reader rating: 6 out of 10


Have you ever wanted to create an E-mail for someone but not send it yet?

This How-To Article shows you how to create an E-mail message, and save it as a draft.

Create a Draft

1. Compose the E-mail message as usual.

2. Once you have finished creating your E-mail message, click the File menu, then select "Save".

3. Click the "File" menu and select "Close".

4. The message will be saved in the "Drafts" folder in Outlook.

Tip: To access the Drafts folder, just click "Drafts" from the Folder List at the left of the screen. If the Folder List is not displayed, click the "View" menu and select "Folder List".
