Draft Emails In Yahoo Mail

I better start by explaining what drafts are and why you may want to delete them.

A draft is an email that has been started but not sent. They can be useful for saving messages you are working on but don’t want to send yet or to copy and paste information from one message into another.

Keeping drafts will help you save the emails that are not ready to send yet. It will also clean your mailbox and make it easy to find the messages that you want to send.

However, if you have too many drafts that are no longer needed, deleting them can be a good solution. It will free up some space in your mailbox, making it easier to find the messages you want to send.

Can We Delete All Draft Emails In Yahoo Mail At Once?

Yes! You can delete all drafts that you created individually and all of them at once. The process is not so difficult, and it doesn’t require more than a few minutes. So, if you decide that you want to delete them, go ahead and follow the instructions below.

Before You Delete All Draft Emails

You may wonder if you should delete all drafts you have created before sending them or do it after? The answer is simple: either way will work just fine! If you want to save some of your messages for future reference before deleting them, go ahead and delete them after sending them. However, if you don’t think you will need them anymore, deleting them before sending them is a good option.
