--- Comment #1 from Paul <paul at claws-mail.org> ---
This is a bug/mis-feature/lacking feature of gmail's imap implementation - it
cannot handle incremental saves to drafts.

These multiple drafted copies you see in the gmail web interface will not have
been sent, they are just many drafted copies.

In order to workaround gmail's broken imap you have 2 solutions:

1. Go to /Configuration/Preferences/Compose/Writing and turn of the
'Automatically save message to Drafts folder every n characters'


2. Use a local Drafts folder in an MH mailbox, (use /File/Add mailbox/MH... to
add one if necessary), and use the option on the account preferences Advanced
page to use that Drafts folder.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
