I work for an organisation that has decided on the following asymmetric configuration of Exchange:
- internal users can read email via IMAPS and send email via SMTP
- external users can read email via IMAPS and can't send email
This is great when I'm on the inside, I can use
mutt. Not so great on the outside, I have to use Outlook Web Access (OWA).
At times I really can't stand OWA, especially since the admins have set the timeout so low that I regularly am logged out in the middle of writing an email. What I'd really like is to read emails in
mutt, write replies, but not send them, instead just save them to the drafts folder. When I'm all done I can log in to OWA and just rapidly send off all the emails in the drafts folder. Except of course that OWA doesn't allow that. For some reason the mails I save to the drafts folder from
mutt aren't recognised as drafts in OWA. Because of this I can only read my drafts in OWA, not edit them or send them off :(
So, my question is, is there some magical incantation that makes OWA recognise an email as a draft (placing it in the drafts folder obviously isn't it)? Maybe there's some undocumented header or something...
