Glitch puzzling.Though Hotmail and Gmail provide more facilities, I have as an ordinary user found Yahoo e-mail always the best. The best item I like is its 'drafts' facility.
A draft is a preliminary text prepared for amendment, or use after scrutiny. Sometimes a standard draft is made, leaving certain information like addresses, date, some references or some small entries blank, according to according to
1. As stated or indicated by; on the authority of: according to historians.
2. In keeping with: according to instructions.
3. each new addressee (communications) addressee - One to whom something is addressed. E.g. "The To, CC, and BCC headers list the addressees of the e-mail message". Normally an addressee will eventually be a recipient, unless there is a failure at some point (an e-mail "bounces") or the message is or new situation. Such standard drafts help not only individuals but also commercial companies.
No other e-mail service See Internet e-mail service. but Yahoo had the advantage that a draft once prepared, could be saved and used as many times as needed as needed prn. See prn order. , each time filling a new date or other required entries.
After use, the originally saved draft remains as it is. The other e-mail services like Hotmail and Gmail have a similar draft facility, but once this draft is used, the original no longer remains in 'drafts' and one needs to type again.
Thus the purpose of standard draft dies.
I have been using Yahoo's draft facility for keeping standard drafts. However, for the last three or four months I have noticed that my saved drafts are being deleted.
Being a non-technical person, I wonder if I have made some mistake in my Yahoo mail See Yahoo! Mail. or Yahoo has changed its draft facility. Can any reader having computer knowledge update and guide me.
