    MAIL question - How to save as draft?


    Please can anyone tell me how to save an email as I am typing it, so that I don't lose the lot if there is a sudden power cut or the prog crashes? I can't find any option for this. Thanks.

    Drafts are saved automatically. You can test this easily: Start a new message, type something, then simply close the Mail app. Re-open the app, check the Drafts folder, your interrupted message is there.

    Thank you for the advice - it does save it! (I just thought it might show it doing something as I type, like in the old email progs!) I can now rest assured that my work won't get lost! Thanks again!
