When composing a "Share to Outlook" email from a Teams channel post, it appears to auto-save your draft and even give you the option to "Save Draft". However, I cannot for the life of me figure out where these drafts go.

 

Anybody have any clue?

 

I could not find anyone else asking this question, so that means I am probably overlooking something simple.

@teamsuser270 It'll be in your drafts folder in Outlook.

That is what I expected, so if that is not happening, any thoughts on troubleshooting?
On a closer look, it does show up in my Drafts, but then is automatically deleted a few moments later.

@teamsuser270 The test I did hasn't been deleted by the next day, so I suggest maybe some kind of outlook rule, sweep etc might be clearing it in your mailbox. Do other drafts stay put?

@Steven Collier, appreciate the follow up. Yeah, it is rather odd: all the other drafts stay put.

 

I cannot think of anything that I intentionally setup. However, I will review for rules, and follow up.
