      Mail question

      I am using Apple mail on an iMac (Boo Whoo)
      I have an issue where the Mail activity monitor is showing that I have 365 Draft emails taking 365mb+ of space.
      I found this after I had to rebuild my mail boxes. I have no drafts showing on my iMac and none are showing online?
      I have been on the Apple Forums and one suggestion was to, in preferences, mailbox behaviours, change the "Drafts Mailbox" from Drafts to "On My Mac". I have tried this a number of times but the setting will not lock and keeps defaulting back to "Drafts"
      I am really trying to find a way of getting rid of these mystical draft messages and wondered if anyone here has a super bright idea!
      So a plea for some wisdom?

      Re: Mail question

      I am unsure what email provider you are using, have you tried logging in via a browser to their webmail and seeing if these draft messages do actually exist on their servers?

      Re: Mail question

      Sky email, so Yahoo. Checking my online account was pretty much the first thing I did, no draft messages.

      I have managed to resolve this problem, I upgraded my iMac to Big Sur, problem sorted, but I am no wiser how the problem came about.

      I have a feeling it was a synchronisation issue, I no evidence of that though!!
