i have begun two emails over the past couple days. When leaving outlook, I select save draft instead of delete and then don’t see them in any folder. How can i find them?

    Hi @Sherry Huston ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    According to your description, i noticed that you have searched online but still not found the drafts. I'm afraid that they have been removed on server. For Outlook client, it's suggested that you could try to recover items from the Recoverable Items folder and check if the drafts stay there.

    If not, I'm afraid that the drafts may be not restored.

    Hope to help you!
