Discarding an email draft

Email Application Dropdown Menu Let's say you are writing an email message and decide that you wanted to trash the draft, what do you do? You would think that you could just swipe up to minimize the app into card view and then throw the message off the top of the screen, thereby discarding the message, right? While this would succeed in getting rid of the email message on the screen, webOS will actually save that message into your email account's "Draft" folder.

So, if you wanted to actually totally discard and delete this message, you need to either:

  • Swipe down from the top-left corner to bring up the Email Application drop-down menu and select "Discard Message", or
  • Use the Meta-tap shortcut by pressing the Gesture Area and the D key at the same time.

Note that you can actually use this as a quick way to send yourself a message and sync it up with your email. Just create a new email message, write up your memo or message, and close the card. You don't even need to address the email message. Then, in the future, just go to your Draft folder and you will find this message waiting for you, and it could even be edited if necessary.
