I am hardly coping with the fact that conversation do not have their own windows (that was such a great feature of N9/00), but this 'bug/lack of feature' makes it even worse.

I want to be able to quickly switch between conversations without losing the messages I was typing.

This 'one message at a time' behavior hurts the multitasking nature of the device.

Thank you.

I do agree definitely with what yiu have mentioned.

I hope that this will be fixed soon.

workaround I use since n900: writing the actual email as note, and once finished, copy everything. (Of course for simple mails thats not needed, but with a lot of copiing etc...)

With we don't loose the draft when multitasking and using app launcher instead of running application to get back to messages. But I too want to be able to switch between conversations an keep the drafts.

[I'm not sure if OP is talking about messages app alone or also about emails] if auto saving is to be implemented for email app (in update 7), i would prefer a remorse timer to cancel the saving action. Since there is no way to copy text directly from displayed emails; i select reply/forward and then copy the desired text. And i don't want the drafts folder to be piled up with messages each time I copy something from an email.

I am talking solely about messages. There are many threads about e-mail drafts, like this one.

I can give you good news!

The next update (update 8) should have automatic saved drafts for messages. They are saved when you switch pages or close the app, and will be there when you go back to that conversation. That works for new messages too.

Fantastic! Thank you very much for your commitment / great work!

Great, thanks!

I knew from the mailing list it was in the plans, but it's good to have this officially confirmed :)

I'm especially glad you thought about new messages as well. The new behavior, as you describe it, sounds exactly like the one on N900 (=perfect).
