automatically discard draft messages that are empty.
When someone mistakenly begins a new draft and they cancel the message, delete the draft if it's empty. Don't force the user to notice the little notification to delete it. This is just following the 80-20 rule here. Make the common use cases easier.
Need to be asked if I want to keep or discard draft. Used to have this, now gone as of Dec. 2016. I now have a bunch of drafts with no content that are hard to delete - why can't I do that from the list of Drafts?

When replying or forwarding a message, if pressed Back button then email is getting saved in Draft, which actually may not be needed. It should ask if I want to Keep it or Discard the email.

There used to be a Discard/Save/Cancel function when you hit the back button when you started an email. Now if you hit the back button in an email it auto saves to drafts then if you want to delete you have to use the swipe button to delete. Why was this feature removed?
I press "reply", "forward", or "reply all" accidentally fairly often. I want to go back by immediately pressing the back button, but outlook asks me if I want to save a draft. this is very annoying.
there should be no confirmation if I hadn't typed anything into the email yet and I just want to cancel it.
I shouldn't have to confirm my discarding of a draft if the email has zero content.
