Is it at all possible to change the time for saving drafts in Apple Mail. I use MobileMe and whenever I send a mail, the draft is not automatically deleted. I don't want to switch off saving of drafts, but would like to increase the time between saves, since I don't need to save drafts for short emails.


If you go into Preferences, Accounts, select your account, then select the "Mailbox Behaviors" tab, there's an option to disable saving drafts on the server. I know you said you didn't want to disable saving of drafts, but this option will still save the draft on your computer, yet it won't mess up Mobile Me.

  • Lacking any better solutions this would be valid. I use different devices and even my browser, so when I do have important emails having them on the server in draft is useful. Definitely an option however, and a valid one, but not ideal for me yet. – BinaryMisfit Jan 13 '11 at 21:39
