Outlook for MAC 2011 - on Yosemite - Emails sent from the Drafts folder COME BACK to Drafts RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have worked with TWO customers today with the same issue, and I saw it firsthand.  Both customers are on Yosemite.  One was using Outlook for MAC 2011 and one was using MACMail. 

    Emails that are being sent from the Drafts folder re-appear in the Drafts folder after being sent.  The emails are sent and do appear in the Sent Items folder.  However, they also re-appear in the Drafts folder as if they haven't been sent.  I was connected to both customers' MAC's via Remote Support, and I even tried to delete the emails, but the emails re-appeared.  I closed MACMail and re-opened it and still the emails are in the Drafts folder.  My other client has also closed Outlook 2011 and re-opened it, only to see the emails still in the Drafts folder.  This is VERY confusing to both clients, and I am scratching my head on this as well.  Any thoughts??
