For instance, all incoming emails will be saved under ‘Inbox’, sent mails will be in ‘Sent Items’ and all saved emails will get listed in ‘Drafts’ folder. Drafts folder consists of all the emails that were composed but not sent to anyone. After composing any email user can either send it or save it to drafts. Also, sometimes when there is sudden system shutdown while composing any email or terminating Outlook forcefully will save the composed emails in Drafts folder.

However, one may accidentally or intentionally delete emails from ‘Drafts’ folder and later may find need of those emails. Not only draft emails, user may mistakenly delete emails from other folders or contacts, notes, tasks, calendar events from Outlook.
