    I just like Ganesha.

    I practice TM.

    It's like having a dozen different charms.
    If one doesn't help, maybe one of the others will.

    Hi Mascaritas,

    unfortunately there is not a solution YET. Not yet two years and a half later your post.

    See details I have posted here:Windows 10 Mail app - Syncing of draft emails across platforms - Microsoft Community

    I have read here at eightforums.com that this feature has been working one day in the meantime around September 2015. I can't believe it! What would be weird is that Microsoft would have implemented it then removed it. Why? test

    In a short: this strange behavior of syncing all folders but Drafts is not related to MSN/Hotmail/Live Mail/Outlook.com messaging service but to functionality missing in Windows 8/10 Mail. I DO SYNC DRAFT FOLDER OF ANY OUTLOOK.COM / LIVE MAIL ACCOUNT USING OUTLOOK DESKTOP VERSION (2013 OR 2016 EDITIONS) WITH A EMAIL ACCOUNT SET UP AS USING IMAP OR EXCHANGE ACTIVESYNC PROTOCOL INSTEAD OF POP3.

    Hope it helps! The solution while using W8.1/W10 Mail: none but just waiting for Microsoft to (re)implement this really missing feature.

    Cheers from France
