  • Hi,

    When did this issue start? Recently or this issue has been there for long?

    Is the amount of the emails in Drafts still growing? If yes, please run Outlook in Safe Mode to determine if it's 3rd-party add-ins related:

    Press Win + R and type “outlook.exe /safe” in the blank box, then press Enter.

    If there’s no problem in Safe Mode, disable the suspicious add-ins to verify which add-ins caused this issue.

    Please note by default, Outlook 2003 automatically saves all unsent emails for you every three minutes. Please check "Save messages" Options in Outlook 2003 since it might be a cause. We can refer to the link below and learn from the content under "Save messages" Options in Outlook 2003:


    As this problem, please suggest the user change password in case the account has been hacked by others.

    Since most of these emails which have the issue were sent from ipad or iphone, please also check on these devices if there's a setting that may affect this.
