I didn't see this issue posted anywhere on this discussion group. But it
happened to us and we found a solution for it so I'm sharing the issue and
resolution.

Issue: User can't locate a Draft e-mail. Its not in her Drafts folder. We
ran a search and found the draft email inside her in-box. All draft emails
are being saved to her in-box.

Resolution: Click Tools->Options->Email Options->Advanced Email Options and
2. In the Save messages box, where it says : “AutoSave items in: _______”,
select Drafts from the dropdown menu.
