Removal of Automatic Save to Draft of Written Messages - Mac OS Leopard

I am sure I have ticked a box I shouldn't and it is an easy problem to solve, but I cannot find the answer in any of the reference books I have.
When I have composed a message in my Mailbox and go to send, it is automatically saved in Drafts and I have to go to Drafts to open and send it. I would like it to go straight to the Send box and be dispatched immediately.
Advice would be very gratefully received.

It will stay in drafts until you send it. That is how all email programmes work.

UNLESS you have the same occasional problem as I do on my Mac - I compose an email and send it BUT there is still a copy in the drafts folder. In this case I simply delete the copy that is in the drafts folder.

RE: Removal of Automatic Save to Draft of Written Messages - Mac OS Leopard

Many thanks, Richard B. I am sure that when I first started using the iMac and OS X Leopard,each time I composed and clicked send, the message went straight to send and did not go automatically via Draft. It has only just started to do this and wastes a great deal of time.
There must be some way to ensure it goes straight out?
Many thanks for trying to help though.

Yours
Barrie

This is a bug in the latest version of OSX (Snow Leopard, 10.6)
