    How to Send a Draft


    (I used to know how to do this, but I've forgotten.)

    If I move a message to the "draft" folder, and then later
    want to send it, how do I do that?

    So far I can only think of copy and paste into a new
    message, but I believe there is another way.

    Ideas?

    Thanks.

    Double-click on the draft, which opens it in a compose screen.
    Click Send.

    years ago, well before email. :-)
