tap to delete drafts
Currently you have to enter each draft message, exit then choose discard in order to delete drafts! Make it like any other folder where you can choose the messages you want to delete then delete them all at once.
Thank you all for your patience and feedback with this feature. It is now possible to quickly delete items from your drafts folder.
To do so you can tap and hold on the draft you want to remove> once the check mark pops up on the left side tap on the trash icon> Note it will ask you to permanently delete the draft so it will not be moved to your trash bin.
You can also empty the entire draft folder by holding down on any item on the list> once the check mark pops up tap on the 3 vertical dots on the top right of the screen> Tap select all > Tap on the trash icon.

All the best

especially on mobile app, it's really tricky to figure out how to delete just a draft or just one message without deleting the entire conversation. if there is a delete button next to the draft I have open and I click it expecting it to delete just that one message, it would be nice to see a confirmation like "are you sure you want to delete the whole conversation? click here to delete this one message."
It's still not working the way easy way described above. This is frustrating trying to keep folders clean and the stuff wont delete.

I simply swipe the draft to the left of the screen and it is deleted.

please let me know how to delete draphs
On my Samsung S9, the tip for deleting the entire contents of the Drafts folder does not work. When I hold down a message so the three dots appear and I click them, I only have the option to add a flag and not to select all the messages. I currently have 72 saved drafts for only three messages I created. What is going on?
when deleting the drafted mail, it is pushing a message that unable to discard mail there is no delete folder available

My ideal is that you get staff that's more imaginative more demanding that their Graphics pop you look at them they just pop out. and I don't know who made the 365 for Android they meet need to make it more user-friendly. and if you're going to go out the Forbidden path you need to make every effort that whoever it is that villainizing by making a generic you need to make sure that generic is strong. send me some of your merchandise to test I have those guys at the engineers Division standing on their toes. and then in that you guys are doing a good job.

To delete drafts: Long tap each draft and then a check mark appears to the left and the trash can is above. You can hit the trash can & then "discard this message?" hit OK and poof they are gone!
