I suggest you ...

Draft email folder

It would be great if there was an option for emails to go into a draft folder to finish at a later time or for a parent to preview before the email is sent.

        I have sent notification to the Developer to see if this is something that he is going to add in the near future. I hope to have an update for you guys soon.

        I also want to add my support for the importance of this feature. We've only been on kidsemail for a couple months so far and the lack of this one feature is causing strong frustration for my daughter. I haven't yet looked into other email programs to determine if they have this feature, but with a little more frustration and prodding from my daughter I likely will. It's a shame because other than this, we really like kidsemail

        Any idea when this is going to become a reality?

        This would be huge!!

        I'm just figuring out how limited kmail is versus so many other apps kids are using now at younger and younger ages. Last summer kmail was fine, now my 4th grader is begging to get OFF kmail b/c it doesn't let her save a draft message!

        Basically, she wants to create a main message then cut and paste to customize for each friend (we're selling GS cookies and she wants to tailor greeting and tell them what they ordered last year) but you can't move between messages, i.e., leave an open message without losing it entirely!!

        I'm also trying to figure why her spell check doesn't work (she says it used to) and why she's having trouble with clipboard (can't get anything to paste even into a new message). I'll deal with those but wanted to give you a use case.

        3rd and 4th graders are used to switching between applications, used to cut and paste, saving drafts, etc. (using google docs ALL THE TIME at school plus some MS Word at home) ... but they are NOT ready for unmoderated email. Please help!!

        Drafts would be needed for autosave so do drafts first but auto save is brilliant, too!

        You need an auto save feature. My daughter typed the same message 3 times and kept loosing it. It was her error but auto save would have avoided a lot of head aches.
