Still no response. Has nobody had this issue.
I had to reinstall Windows, which rectified it, but later when it restarted after some updated, it again become read emails instead of draft mails on the desktop.

What is the file extension?

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to MS Outlook saved Draft me ...

When you saved them to your desktop, did it save them as .msg file types or what? Please explain how you saved them. I don't understand what you mean by 'used to open as a simple draft'. An email is an email.

If saved as .msg file types and you double click them to open them, they'll be opened with the default email program as a normal EMAIL message ready to be sent. If you want to save them as a draft, you need to save them IN Outlook's draft folder.

Also, what 'updates' did you apply? Did it have anything to do with XML?

EML message issue

by arunjoseph001 In reply to What is the file extensio ...

Sorry for being so late. The message gets saved as .eml. I just go to File-Save as to save a draft mail (from outlook express) on my desktop. Earlier they opened as a draft mail and i could used it on daily basis in my office. but now they open as a simple mail. I dont know which updates were installed as they are done by the IT support personnel.
