Generally, when a message is sent, the draft is deleted. But sometimes, it is not.

It can happen even if I never saved the message while writing (in which case the draft is completely automatic).

It also happens that two drafts are recorded for the same message, which could be another bug or the same. I don't remember for sure that this already happened with automatic draft saving, though.

/home/jerome/.claws-mail/imapcache/*domain*/*account*/Drafts/111597: unlink: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type

The draft that should have been erased is 


Don't know if this is useful.
