    I have been trying to use the "native" email app on my note, but I can't seem to figure out how to edit the emails in my draft file......I don't even see an option to do so. Is it possible?

    Thanks!

    Are you able to access drafts? If so, then just open the draft. If that does not work, look for the icon that will allow you to edit it. It is doable.

    I can access the drafts, but I can't find the option to allow me to edit. Normally I use the gmail app, but it doesn't allow me to share attachments with Google drive....the k9 app does as does the desktop version of gmail.
    I think the native email app has even more options, which is why I am trying to use it.

    Top right-hand corner of the draft message there is a button that looks like small notepad with a pen sitting on it ;)

    When I touch that icon, it gives me a new email form.

    The icon is not on the bar, on the draft email itself!

    Is it possible that you can't edit a Gmail draft that has synced with the native email app? I created a draft in the native email app, and can edit and change it no problem. But Gmail drafts I can't seem to change.

    GMail and native app email drafts are two separate things. I can edit one and the other no problems, so I think you are doing something wrong or trying to do something, that inr reality cannot be done.

    I was thinking that I would be able to use either app to edit draft emails..... Say I made a draft in gmail and wanted to edit it in the native Sammy email app....that is what iwas trying to do.

    Gmail syncs with the native app, but not the other way around. I did a draft in the native email app, and it did not show up as a draft in gmail...even after sync and refresh.

    Do you have the native email app set up with GMail IMAP or POP3?

    Hi
    I have tried the same, but there is no button of such kind in my galaxy note 10.1, native email app. It is really annoying that I cannot edit my email draft (saved in other place) in the native email app.

    thanks

    What do you mean by 'saved in other please'? How do you want to edit a draft in in the email app if it is not in the email client?

    Sorry I meant that if I create a draft in my computer or laptop using yahoomail, and then if I want to edit that draft in galaxy note it is not possible. In native email app of galaxy there are two draft folders one is drafts and other is draft. Drafts contain those draft which are created in native email app, on the other hand Draft folder contain drafts which are created elsewhere like on laptop or computer. Hope I have made it clear this time.
    Thanks

    I use the native email app, and it is lame..... can't even block emails!!!

    Have you made sure that the draft folders are set up to synchronize on the Note?

    Are you sure you set up the email client in IMAP and not POP?

    Just give it a break. It has never been an email client's job to block spam. It is your server's job.

    Yes it is set up as imap and smtp for ingoing and outgoing. I have checked in settings of email app there is no option for setting for synchronizing drafts folder separately. Can you help me where and how can I find it?
    Thanks

    How can it be set up for both IMAP AND SMTP at the same time - my bad, it is fine.


    So I set my Gmail account as IMAP, to test it. I created a Draft on my phone and used the Note for testing. I opened the Note's internal drafts folder after sending and of course nothing was there.

    I then opened the Gmail IMAP folders and the dates folder as there along with all other folders I had set up to show in IMAP via the Gmail website. I hit the send button and the fact was there.

    Go to Gmail website and make sure drafts is set up to show in IMAP.

    I con't speak for windows, but mail clients on iOS and Mac DO have the ability to block emails. Android does not. So it is a feature that is lacking. Why, in your most lofty opinion, must I give it a break? Why should I be expected to hold Android to a lower standard than other OS's?

    Apple is not a standard of today, it is 10 years behind everyone else already, so do not take it as an example.

    For Exchange you ALWAYS have the Junk Mail folder.

    Otherwise, it is a feature that can be done with rules. Why does one need to do it, when servers have been iin charge of fishing out spam and taking care of it? No idea.

    BESIDES, this threadd is about EDITING DRAFTS not SPAM!!!
