emails go to draft folder

HI Mable ...

When we would type an email -it would automatically saves emails in drafts ,when there is inactivity in typing .
So try sending a small email -just type test and send it and check ..

Have you thought about using Windows Live Mail to access your mail?

Hope I'm not too late with this. WLE 2010.zip This is the one I use on my 2 computers, its easier to use as it does not have the ribbon as the newer versions has. I include Windows Live Photo Gallery for the same reason and set it as my default app.
Make sure their is no Windows Live Essentials on your pc before installing.
