Drafts remaining after emails sent, GPGMail #830

Similar to what is said in https://gpgtools.tenderapp.com/discussions/problems/35136-apple-mai... , some drafts are not eliminated from my Drafts folder after I send them. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Symptoms :
While I type a new email, many copies are saved in Drafts. Once I send the email, most of them are eliminated, but very often one remains in the Drafts folder, and I have to manually delete it.

Version information :
Mac OS X 10.9.5
Apple Mail 7.3 (1878.6)
GPGMail 2.5b6 Build 917b - "Sign messages by default" is checked in Preferences > GPGMail
MacGPG2 2.0.27b6 Build 802b

    Hi Belle-Isle,

    are you using IMAP or POP3 for your email account?

    Are you planning on updating to OS X 10.10? It seems, that things have improved under 10.10.

    We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll receive a notification. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    All the best,

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I'm using IMAP on all accounts. Sorry, forgot to mention that.
    For various reasons (older hardware, no need for handoff and similar gadgets, etc.) I'm not planning on upgrading to 10.10 soon, sorry...
    Let me know if I can be of any help, providing any kind of logfile or similar.

    Best regards and thanks for the great work !

    The bug where Mail.app created multiple drafts has been fixed by Apple in macOS 10.13. If you are still affected by this issue, consider updating to macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
