It doesn't always save the latest changes and sometimes can't delete uploaded file attachments from computers. This is in updated Chrome web browser in updated mac OS Big Sur v11.7.1 on web site.

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering soon.

    The thing is the e-mails weren't sent yet. Just saving e-mails in draft before sending.
