My co-worker's email won't save drafts.  We're set up as imap accounts, running our company email through Apple Mail.  When she tries to save to draft, she gets the following error message:  "The message could not be saved" and then the only option is to click okay.  We checked in ~/Library/Mail/Mailboxes/ and found that there was no Drafts mbox... It does not seem to be creating one on its own - how can we create one?


She is using MacBook Pro 3,1 with OS 10.6.8.  Have shut down Mail and restarted laptop several times.


Any suggestions welcome!

    kthsynileen,  Try going to Mail prefences, mailbox behaviors and see if store draft messages on the server is checked. If it is uncheck it and then try again. Hope this helps.  All the Best.
