Default Cannot edit email in 2007 Outlook drafts folder

I save many draft emails and update (edit) them regularly with new info.
In Outlook 2007 I cannot edit the files. Any clues for me?

TIA

what happens when you try?
Does it happen if you make a new message and save to drafts?

Found my answer on drafts being grayed out and not editable.

"Check you don't have a view set. While in the Drafts Folder go to
View-Current View and set it to "messages"

Works now!
