Accessing a saved/draft message

Important: The Drafts folder is at the top of the list of folders in Mail. In this folder, you'll find draft messages that you've saved. You can edit and send your drafts anytime. The Exchange ActiveSync protocol doesn't allow drafts on your iOS device to sync with the Drafts folder on the Microsoft Exchange Server (and vice versa).

When you are ready to resume working on the draft email, tap and hold your finger on the icon to compose a new email (in the top/bottom right corner of the screen). A window will appear displaying all the draft emails you have saved. Tap on a draft email to open it and continue editing.
