Draft email does not show up in Outlook's Outbox

Hello. In my “Send Outlook Email” activity, draft is checked, but I don’t see the email in my Outbox after I run it. Am I looking in the wrong place? When I uncheck it, an email is sent successfully. However, I would like to see it in the outbox as draft first. Please advise. Thank you.

I think you have to look for the drafts folder instead of outbox folder

I looked there as well, but unfortunately I don’t see the emails.

@Yannie ,

IsDraft - Specifies whether the message should be saved as a draft.

The Mail will be in OutBox - when Outlook is not able to send the Email lets say because of network Issue. After some Time - assuming that outlook is connected - the email will be sent to the the Recepient and the mail will move from outbox to Sent Items.

The IsDraft will Save the Mail in the Draft Fodler.

If you explicitly want to have email in the outbox folder - you can always move emails with the help of Move email activity.
