When you save a message as a draft, we should mark that message as unread. This way it is obvious that you have drafts messages that are unfinished. I can't tell you how often I go into my drafts folder to finish one message, and find another one that I never did send. I got this idea from Outlook, which does this. Other things that outlook does with drafts that are interesting: - Messages in the drafts folder are ALWAYS marked as unread - there is no "preview pane," as they call it, when you click on the drafts folder. This means you are forced to double-click the message to "read" it and thus continue your composition. - A side effect of this is that there isn't any way to mark a draft message as read. This means that the drafts folder is always bold until you've sent all the messages in the folder. I'm not sure how I feel about that, because I think you could easily start ignoring a bold drafts folder. In mozilla/thunderbird, at least you can click in the unread flag column to mark the message as read.
