I had an issue recently where I was getting an absurd amount of draft messages into my Outlook Client. The message was one that I already had sent to a co-worker over a week ago. I had already deleted over 400 messages from my drafts to this point. I tried running the Skype for Business tool to see if it would clear the cache of temp files and hopefully stop this from happening.
No dice, I restarted my computer multiple times and the Skype for Business application itself. The problem still persisted. I then did what most people today, I complained on Twitter.

I felt vindicated briefly, but the problem was still there, then having a few free minutes I went to the Googles.
That is where I found the answer! User Jordan Nolan pointed another user to the solution and right location of the culprit file!
It is not really clear as to why this happens, One thing I did observe is the user I was interacting with had just moved to Office 365, I am still on Exchange. I like the other users are in a mixed application shop meaning, I installed the latest version of Skype over an older install. There maybe some bug I am unaware of that doesn’t play nice with the different versions
This was a simple fix, and I am hoping it doesn’t happen again as it is more annoying then anything as a user to have to do this. I do not like hundreds of drafts in my draft folder and seeing that number made me cringe every-time.
