Webmail error: "Message cannot be saved as Draft"

After composing an email, I'm often seeing that the message is "stuck" in the DRAFT folder with an error at the top of the screen that says:

Needless to say, when this occurs, I can not send that email. The email has nothing fancy in it, no attachments, etc... just TEXT.
(Edited per community guidelines) is going on with AT&T/Yahoo email?!?
I've never had so many problems as I've had in the last 2-3 month's!
Is this a tactic being used to get me to upgrade to the PAID version?

This has just happened to me 3 or 4 times
in the last 2 days. I write a lengthy email,
stop to resume it later, and when I'm done,
I can't send it "from your draft folder".
Yesterday I horsed around with refreshing,
copying it to a new compose email, leaving for
awhile and going to another site, etc. when
finally the message was sent. Or Was It???
I couldn't move the emails in my draft folder
to my inbox to send it, either. I feel my
email is totally unreliable. Never thought
about it being a tactic No1Nose, to get me
to upgrade. I thought the new Yahoo mail
was free. PS. I like your Username. Very
Witty. IvaProblem

The paid Yahoo Mail + runs on exactly the same infrastructure as the free version, they simply enable the extra features. 

So you get the added benefit of the extra features and don't lose any of the other "features" like daily password changes, tons of spam in your Inbox, getting logged out in the middle of composing an email and yes, Drafts that are totally useless.

Quite the bargain, no? 🙄

Thanks for the upfront honest answer regarding the paid version of Yahoo.  They make the extra features look so good.  Glad you told us it's just an updated version of Yahooey!
