If you care about compliance, the "Drafts" folder in your Inbox needs to be archived.
Archiving vendors take several approaches to email archiving. Some access mailboxes via MAPI and pull items out into the archive. Others intercept SMTP traffic and journal a copy into the archive. Others copy the database transaction logfiles ('log shipping') and rebuild the email database for archive reasons.
Journaling only captures what has been sent. MAPI and log shipping capture the Drafts folder.
This story on CNN contains a nugget about why archiving Drafts is important. "A Yahoo! e-mail account was set up so the men and militants could communicate.... E-mails were never sent from the account, but people would leave messages in the draft folder and delete them after reading."
Whenever a law or compliance regime exists, people will try and get around it. Archiving "Drafts" is necessary for compliance. ... David Sengupta
