Windows 7: Outlook 2010 Drafts save to servers

Outlook 2010 Drafts save to servers

I'm using MS Outlook 2010
I have one POP-Account storing mails in local folder.
And also some IMAP Mail accounts.

When I create a mail and save the draft, the draft is allways saved into the local Draft folder,
and not to the coresponding (selected by senders account selection within mail) IMAP folder.

Does anyone know who to change this?

I found this add-in that will do it, but it is not free.


Was unable to find anyone able to save drafts in the IMAP folder. A Guy
