Hello,

When I edit a mail using outorg, it leaves behind a mail in my draft
folder (from "nobody" with subject "(none)" and with the text the
contents of the org buffer, including the "* --text follows this
line--" heading). Is there a way to avoid having this draft left behind?

Thanks,

Alan

PS: if this is not the appropriate place to ask questions about outorg,
please let me know

This happens to me too, but it is a gnus/message-mode thing, outorg
itself does nothing to create this drafts. 

It has its own backup system, you can use C-x C-s in the
*outorg-edit-buffer* to save it explicitly (to a file in an
automatically created directory like e.g. '/tmp/outorg-295tTO'), and via
kill-buffer-hook it is saved anyway at exit, even if killed
accidentally, so you never loose the edited content in the
*outorg-edit-buffer*:

,----[ C-h v kill-buffer-hook RET ]
| kill-buffer-hook is a variable defined in `files.el'.  Its value is
| (outorg-reset-global-vars outorg-save-edits-to-tmp-file
| org-check-running-clock browse-url-delete-temp-file
| recentf-track-closed-file tramp-delete-temp-file-function
| reftex-kill-buffer-hook vc-kill-buffer-hook)
|
| Documentation:
| Hook run when a buffer is killed.
| The buffer being killed is current while the hook is running.
| See `kill-buffer'.
`----

These message-drafts are really redundant and a bit annoying, but I have
no idea about the inner workings of gnus and doing

,----
| C-h f gnus-draft- TAB 
| C-h v gnus-draft- TAB 
`----

did not enlighten me any further. So I will ask on the gnus mailing list
right now and report any helpful answers here.

if nobody else complains, it looks like the appropriate place to
me. Maybe start the subject with 

,----
| Subject: [outorg] edition of mails and drafts
`----

so I don't miss it.

Another option would be to start an issue on github, but the Org mailing
list is much more convenient for me.

Thanks, I'll subscribe to that group as well and read the answers there.
