AQ Mail Drafts

Has there been any thought of automatically putting messages started into a draft file if they are not completed for one reason or another? I was involved in a lengthy AQ mail today and got distracted and pushed the wrong key on my keyboard. Clicked the back arrow and my draft is totally gone. I have to start all over. Just a thought.

I would love that, too!

I do this sometimes when writing clues. Now I usually type them in Word first and then paste them in. This prevents me from shrieking in frustration and scaring the heck out of the cats or family members.

I just did that a little while ago when I lost my AQ mail.

I agree with the idea of using Word and pasting. I usually think about that when it's too late though. i noticed my private email has a draft page and anytime I start an email it automatically goes into drafts and stays there quite awhile.

That would be great. I have had a lot of problems writing clues, and having them disappear before I could finish. Sometimes it's just the internet going awry for a second, and all is lost.

Yes! Please reference our trail name.

I just do them in Notepad. Word has too many features that won't translate into an AQ clue listing.

We seem to have wandered off topic.....as usual. The draft feature is being proposed for AQ mail, not AQ clues, right?
Peace

I think BBStacker's idea is a good one too. Wasting time having to recreate something written is frustrating.

An auto save would be helpful.
