Is that folder marked as marked as "Favorite folder"? If yes, just un-tick it.

The folder is Drafts, not Favorite.  See screenshot I attached with first report.

I access my email using Thunderbird 14.0
What happens when you right click on the folder and choose properties and then repair folder ?

I repeated those steps 4 more times and suddenly the draft email appeared.  At that time I was able to successfully delete it.  Thanks for the fix!

Recently, I had the same problem in Thunderbird. The Drafts folder (in IMAP server) shows an unread number (3) but no unread messages appear in the list. Unbscribing then subscribing again to the Drafts folder solves the issue.
