Any ideas for a workaround under these circumstances? I have found this frustrating myself and the same behavior exists in Office 2011 for the Mac. It should be possible to only save locally and not on the email server. If so, I think one of next. Outlook seems to behave a little differently now because it doesn't assign a date to an email unless the email is sent. Sorry for the hassle folks—I appreciate all the debug info and feedback.
On the other hand, users reporting a problem can get involved in the development themselves that's how I started or hire someone to investigate their favourite bug. I don't see why alert windows should be used at all, especially for something as trivial as an draft-autosave failure. The mysterious email was gone. A Delete mail without copy to trash. These are really serious issues and they should be fixed in the next release.
The worst thing is, the drafts are actually saved, if I open my webmail I can see the draft in the Drafts folder. So, it seems to be something that can only be fixed from that client.
